Guard Your Heart

It is impossible to keep people from doing certain things to us, just because we try our hardest to protect ourselves from getting hurts. Especially in relationship, we often fear too much that we try to run away by restricting other's freedom. I've done too much on this, and the more I tried to keep it, the more I fear... the more I lost... the more it hurts.

We can never control people. It will only make us fear more, worry more, and paralyze more by what they may do. 

The only thing we can do is to keep and to guard our own heart and mind, fill it with what is true, what is pure, and lovely (Phil 4:8-9)

Eventually, we will end up finding that guarding out heart and mind brings more freedom, happiness, and life worth living. Eventually, what others do will no longer matter. We find the only essential thing for our own living: a life not depended on what others do to us, yet a flourishing life of our own peaceful heart.

So guard your heart, for the springs of your life comes from it.
