Message from Dr. Phil

I seriously started writing this post then I felt it turned into bunch of crap so I stopped! But I am going to post it anyways.. What the heck! Here you go:

Enough about fixing Iraq. What about fixing you, me or any of us for that matter? Just like nations people can go through their own internal struggles leading to pain and chaos.  How do we fix it?

– Make peace with yourself: just like the Mandella quote "you make peace with your enemies, not your friends", you should start with making peace with yourself. Acknowledge  your weaknesses and shortcomings first. Then try to get over them. An alcoholic who does not acknowledge he has a problem is bound to stay this way. Your weakness is you enemy. You make peace with it by acknowledging it. (that’s where I stopped.. Kinda lost track of the point.. so feel free to finish it!).

I actually think it's an important message. I don't think the best way to say it is 'make peace with yourself', but rather "to thine own self be true" (Shakespeare). Making peace makes it sound like you accept it, and acknowledging something isn't the same as accepting it, but rather it's the first step towards changing it if it's something you don't like.
