“V” is for Victory

ImageIt is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell. — Buddha

Is it human nature to want to change others?  How often have you witnessed this struggle between others? Isn’t that what every war really boils down to?  Differences in point of views and wanting the others to do things our way?

How often is the instigator not even perfect in their own believes they are trying to push onto others?  We become blind to our own faults. 

What is that other saying about those who live in glass houses?  You know the one.  

I believe I am safe to say that I have enough faults to fix to last me a lifetime trying to correct. Why would I want to take on others?

One Response to “V” is for Victory

  1. It’s like Diana Barry professing to Anne Shirley that she wants to marry a bad boy and fix him or change him or something like that. We can’t “fix” anyone other than ourselves.
