Life is a continuous learning experience. Learning to surrender, and learning to take a stand. Decide what’s important to you and take a stand. Be flexible when new information comes to light.
Sometimes you have to tell the world and those around you how it’s going to be. It’s up to you to put your foot down and say what your boundaries are. Some people will respect you for it, some will fear you for it, and some will be pissed off. So be it .
You can’t force other people to do what you want, but you can tell them what you are going to do or not do, and let them decide how they’re going to react.
