Quotes to Live By - Letting go doesn't mean you don't care

"Letting go doesn't mean that you don't care about someone anymore. It's just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself." - Deborah Reber Today I picked this quote because I wanted to talk about acceptance.  I think that acceptance of situations or ourselves sometimes gets a negative association.  People say things like, are you going to just let that happen?  How can you just accept that?, etc.  And we feel the need to always have control over situations.  Thinking that we can control the way the situation always pans out, or how the person on the...

Quotes to Live By - The way people treat you is a statement about them, not you

"The way people treat you is a statement about who they are as a human being.  It is not a statement about you." One of the life lessons I've learned in interactions with people is that the way that others react towards us is a reflection of them and how they feel about themselves and less about us.  This is whether they treat you negatively or positively.  I have learned to not take other's attacks, criticism, or comments towards me personally.  If you haven't done anything to hurt someone else, then the negative reaction is a reflection of who they...
