The Road To Serenity

"G-d, grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference."

The Serenity Prayer

Sweetest friends!! Do you want to be happy? Stop trying to change [also known as "control", but "change" sounds nicer] people around you. You become an "Adam Hashalem" [complete person] yourself and that will make a far greater impression than trying to impose your viewpoint upon others. Let people be who they are. I often repeat to myself a line that was told to me by a friend who was studying social work, "Accept the patient as he is." Everyone is a LITTLE bit meshuggena, so let them be! We are just people. Fallible and at times even foolish.

Accept the patient as he is.

By the way, "the patient" includes ....... you. Accept yourself as being imperfect. Then get to the business of trying to perfect yourself.
