We have control over ourselves −−−our thoughts, our words, our actions, and who we become. Some circumstances are certainly beyond us and we will never have command over such, but we do have the power to choose whether to restrain or to respond and how (if) we allow it to affect us. Blaming others only relinquishes our control and gives others authority over us. This is not self-control. Self-control must be mastered over one’s own soul. There are people, processes, and procedures that are unfair and will probably remain that way. If you can’t change it, don’t allow it to control you, but rather choose to rise above it.
