Though usually well meaning, parents, siblings, friends and spouses who try to control their loved ones are bound to harvest the bitter fruit of inevitable resentment. While living in a diverse world might require more adjustment and accommodation, trying to satisfy others or struggling to get them to conform to your standards is a battle with no victors. Doing what you love, living life your own way and allowing others to do the same makes everyone

A whole lot happier.
