It is important to know what you can and can’t change. The Serenity Prayer reminds us that this thought is WISDOM. When it comes to people, here are some reminders:

  • You can’t control another’s receptivity to your ideas and beliefs.
  • You can’t control their desire to listen to you or even understand your point of view.
  • But you can control your attitude, your receptivity, and your ability to listen and acknowledge another’s point of view. ~Sherry Petro-Surdel
