“We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.”  – Dolly Parton

When facing a problem or conflict, it’s important to try and focus on the things within your control, such as your own behavior and the boundaries you choose to set in your relationships.

By focusing on yourself, you can manage your emotional response to the things that happen in life that are out of your control. While it may not necessarily direct the winds or the resolution of the problem, it can certainly help adjust your sails and change your perspective on it all.
