You Can’t Change Anyone But Yourself, So Stop Tripping & Enjoy the Journey…


By Tanisha Hopson

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference”. ~ Reinhold Niebuhr

Some people are easy to love; while others are just tolerable. Some people really do talk too much without thinking; while others stay quiet and use wisdom before speaking. Some people have earned the reputation of being the life of any party; while others are quiet by nature and enjoy spending time by themselves. Some are dependable; while others are extremely unreliable. Some people are gossip bearers; while others try their best to mind their own business.

Regardless of the case, whether we like it or not; we are all called to love our neighbors as ourselves. The sooner we all learn to accept people for who they are and where they are – we will see major improvements in our lives and relationships.

When we have no power to change situations, we must choose to “accept” and pray for improvements regarding circumstances. One nugget that could help you out tremendously today is: “You cannot change anyone but yourself, so stop tripping and enjoy the journey.” You can only change your perspective, your way of thinking, and what you will or will not do. End of story. So, take the pressure off yourself, other people and put God back in charge!
