As we traverse the rocky path of life looking for the smooth parts, we often encounter people and situations that seemingly make our life more difficult than we would like.
The common reaction for most is to ask, think, require, demand that the others in this situation change. Sometimes we are in a position of control and can exact that desired change, but mostly not. A significant portion of our personal angst is self-created and within our control to change ourselves, if we so desire.
- Marvin John Towler
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference."
