There are so many things in life we try to control and we simply can’t. We can control our actions and reactions, but we can’t control the actions or reactions of others. We need to remind ourselves that sometimes the reaction we get from others, may be due to the reaction they get from us. We have the power of reasoning and choice, both of which give us substantial control over our own actions. You can spend all of your energy on things you can’t control or use it to create positive change in your life.
