Who Can You Really Control?
“Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.”
― Deborah Reber, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul
Letting go is a life-time job. We let go of our kids. We let go of our parents. We let go of relationships both good and bad. We let go of jobs we love. There are even times when we must let goal of our dreams, schemes, and analysis of the world and its people around us.
We must all let go of the idea we were born to be taken care of. No matter what skin tone or manner of speech, we are all part of a supreme collective.
Henry Ford says, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; and working together is success.”
Most all of us make commitments to certain activities, goals, and beliefs. We must learn to empower ourselves both as individuals and as a collective to be successful. So many of us have been left behind. So many of us having taken on evil as a life goal. So many of us live as victims, like women and children. Speaking up and out can with our actions can empower us from evil.
Demanding respect and acceptance the way we talk, dress, live and work can empower us. No matter how old we are, we cannot take too much for granted that life will turn out the way we envision. There are many grand surprises in store for us. These thoughts can keep us ready and willing to take on what evil takes us on.
Sam Walton says, “High expectations are the key to everything.”
Carl Jung says, “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
It takes courage to grow up and become who we really are. It takes courage to turn ones back on evil and go for the gold of heart and soul. Behind every beautiful thing, there is some kind of pain we must let go of. It is important to remember nothing in life is permanent and most everything, and everyone is a temporary happiness.
