Getting your way

Do you realize how much worry, frustration and anxiety you could save yourself by simply letting go of the need to always get your way? Getting your way, just for the sake of getting your way, adds no value to your life, and can seriously sour your moments and relationships.

In a similar vein, proving you're right, just for the sake of proving you're right, brings you nothing worthwhile. Mainly, it gives people reasons to resent you and avoid you.

Trying to impress people with how rich or stylish or sophisticated or informed you are, can also be a big waste of your life. Seek instead to connect in a friendly, genuine, humble and caring way, and your efforts will bring much more fulfilling fruit.

Life gives you too many good opportunities for you to be wasting your time on pursuits that won't do you any good. Put your time and energy not into satisfying your shallow ego, but into making positive, meaningful progress.

Certainly it is important to do what you intend to do and to make yourself and your perspectives understood. Yet there's nothing to be gained by alienating other people in your life in order to meet your goals.

Look for ways to give your love and focused, caring efforts to life. That will bring you considerably more joy and fulfillment than merely getting your way.

We stay sober and clean together - one day at a time!
God says that each of us is worth loving.
