If we cannot control ourselves, we can’t control others. Sometimes people hold ideas that are not true or do not base on reality, such ideas are found to be related to stress. Dr Sadaqat Ali highlights the fact that being happy is one’s own job rather making it someone else’s responsibility. Even in marital relations where we struggle to make the better half happy, it won’t work, until or unless we have a previous history of keeping at least one person happy and that too starts with our own being. We can only give others what we have.
Solution is to learn stress management skills and to work on our paradigms. Usually people connect whatever happens to them to their fate, which is not true. With hard work everything is possible, whether it be respect, fame, wealth or success. Life is like a game, in which taking responsibility is a winning factor. Facing a problem always ends up receiving a reward. This brings us to another approach which is take responsibility of our own life. In order to achieve success we need to achieve healthy state of mind. More importantly we teach people how to treat us. We have been taught by society to behave in expected ways or in ways that pleases others. Don’t be a people pleasure and don’t let others control you.
