"Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote the freedom to err."
~M. Gandhi~
We can only control people so far using guilt and shame tactics, and brandishing threats and fear. Eventually, they will always learn their own power and step up to claim it, or else walk away tired of the game.
     We do far better to give others their freedom, a bit of encouragement, and lots of love. Because the truth is that when it comes right down to it, they don't really need us in the end.
I stop trying to control people and let them be.
