The search for serenity

Accept the things you can't change,
change the faults and failings that is possible to change
and try to find out, seriously, what is changeable and what is not.

It's possible to stop smoking.
It's not easy but it is possible.
Many nicotine addicts have managed to give up smoking.

Even many heroin addicts have been able to stop taking drugs.

It's possible to stop lying to oneself.
It's possible to stop making a pig of oneself.
It's possible to get off the bandwagon and ignore the rat race.

It's possible to leave a religious faith, a religious sect,
a confession, a worldview or a political platform,
without adopting another belief system or mind set.

But it is not possible to change the past.
