248. Why Nagging Doesn’t Work

One of the tremendous pain in a relationship comes from the illusion of having the power we don’t have. It is the belief that “I can change others.” We may never say this out loud, but it is not difficult to see this belief manifesting in how we respond to people. Nagging, lecturing, being forceful and yelling are all byproducts of this belief. But it would save us so much trouble and frustration if we could just face the truth…

247. Who, not How

I like to do things on my own. I didn’t even know how to hammer a nail on a wall before I got married. But thanks to Jennifer, I think I became a lot handier than before. When something goes wrong, I think about “how” to fix it. Doing things yourself gives some level of satisfaction. And because it is yours, you tend to make sure it is done well. And if it is a repetitive maintenance job, the more…

246. Chance of Happiness

We are living in a culture where our daily preferences and wants are treated as human rights. I think it comes from a belief that anything that negatively affects our happiness is a violation of our rights. When happiness is expected, we believe it needs to happen. However, happiness is not a human right. An opportunity to pursue and choose it is. In many countries, there isn’t even an opportunity to pursue it, so that would violate human rights. But…

245. Power to Choose

For some reason, my home internet was very spotty this week, and it was pretty much unavailable most of the time. I called my internet provider, but they could not provide much help other than promising to send a technician later. (As of this writing, the wifi issue persists.) Even though it was a few days, having no wifi was certainly inconvenient and annoying. I did manage to get things done using a cellular connection, but most things took twice…
