“Get out of your own way.” “Just surrender control.” “You can’t do anything about it, so stop trying.” Well-meaning friends may see what our problem is—even if we can’t—and give us wise advice.
My standard reply is “How?”
Surrendering control isn’t like riding a bicycle, at least not for me. I have to learn it anew each time I do it.
Action: Surrendering means doing nothing about whatever you can’t do anything about. Try not to stare at it either. Do something else, something you can do. Try to relax, just a little. If you must do something, say “Thy will be done” and mean it.
