There are things we can control and things we can't. It takes wisdom and acceptance to figure out which is which. But once you do, it becomes easier to release the things you can't control and focus your attention on what you can. Change happens, not only externally, but internally. You'll find there's a certain peace in letting go of what you can't control, especially if you're able to turn it over to God, who can easily do what you can't. We all have control issues. The beginning of mastering them starts with ourselves. Self-control. If we can't control ourselves, we certainly can't control things outside ourselves, including others. So let's focus on learning to control our emotions, our speech, our behavior, our bad habits, our eating and any other thing that demands our attention from within. We're all we really have control over. So let the other stuff go. Breathe a sigh of relief that you don't have to deal with everyone's issues. Because really, don't we have plenty of our own?
