I only have control over what I do, what I say, what I eat, when I exercise, and how I treat people. I am struggling to remember that I have ABSOLUTELY NO CONTROL over what others do, say, eat, think, or how they treat people. I try to set a good example and do the right thing, but at the end of the day, everyone has to be accountable for their own decisions and actions, or lack therof for that matter. I can't force, wish, will, or love someone into doing or saying something they don't want to. Sometimes it is hard to give up 'control', but each of us was given free will. Sometimes people just have to figure things out for themselves I guess!
