There is so much going on in the World today – but what can we do about it? We have no control over others – if we did that would be wrong, the only ones we have control over is ourselves. And controlling ourselves is probably the hardest thing we can do. Self-Control….
In our minds, we really believe that we know how to solve the world’s problems if people would only listen to us. We believe that if people would just act a certain way, do certain things, and change what they do, then the world would be a much better place.
However, this is a bad idea. As I mentioned earlier the only people we can control are ourselves. Now we very well are able to influence people, but that is not the same as controlling them, people still have self-will. Although, there are some people that give up their self-control and let others control them. This is really a sad thing. Why would we want to give up our freedom by being influenced by others? Should we make up our own minds and act?
There’s a saying, we can either act or be acted upon. It’s much better to act than be acted upon.
