If you never learn anything else from my writing, please remember this:
You can not control anyone but you
This is so important because countless amounts of times, I have experienced this feeling of having the capacity to change someone or alter what they do or think.
If you are having issues facing this fact (as I was at first), I advise you to remember to reflect on yourself and all that controlling yourself entails.
Have you mastered self-control?
Control over your thoughts, emotions, and actions?
No? Not surprising because very few of us have.
Then why do you feel you can control someone else? An entirely different being with different triggers, traditions, values, morals and logic.
Conquer yourself. That’s a job in itself.
If we can’t handle people as they are, perhaps we need to adjust ourselves.
