“Release me from wanting to control everyone’s affairs… Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally it is possible that I may be mistaken… With my vast store of wisdom, it seems a pity not to use it all…” 12 Step Prayer Book
How often I’ve felt that I do know better, I really am right, and I can’t help being so smart. But surrendering control of others is the path to peace with them. Admitting my wrongs gets my ego right-sized. Resigning from the debating committee makes life so much easier. Today I’ll listen to others and offer my opinions only if asked. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and ILML!
