Having to control people and situations can be a very tiring place. Wanting and always needing to be right is exhausting, the only person who appreciates it is you-it leaves one very lonely. I am learning to give up control to live by the motto that it is better to be happy than right. The trick is to do so and not be walked on. It is a paradox that in surrender one finds true strength. By taking time to pause, be still, to do nothing is action in itself. In that quiet place there is often a simple answer. As hard as it may be I can only look at myself and study myself- I only have control of how I act and respond. Do I want to be happy or right?
