The Serenity Prayer

🔥 To Thyself be True

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference”

Funnily enough the serenity prayer was not written by some spiritual icon of the ages, it was written by an American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr.

The serenity prayer can be an extremely practical self-leveling tool which has numerous applications.

For most of us our greatest fear is what others think about us…

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change…

There will always be things about yourself and others that you cannot change…

So why are you still trying to change the way you are to suit how others view you?…

Courage to change the things I can…

Instead of being so consumed about what others think of you, only worry about what you think of them without prejudice…

And the wisdom to know the difference…

In world where people auto tune their behaviors to suit the latest trend…

Be true to yourself…

No matter how good a person you are, you will always be evil in someones story…

No matter how much you try to impress others, some people will just never be impressed by you…

Instead of fearing what other people think of you, find the courage to be the real you and stay the real you.

To thyself be true.

Paul
