"If you're waiting for others to change you may wait a very long time. Still, people make extraordinary efforts to modify the behaviour of others in an effort to make relationships work.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and 

     supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

~Reinhold Niebuhr
