• Do you control your inner condition? Your inner condition is what is happening on the inside. Are you happy, sad, angry, or depressed? You have to understand that your situation in life does not determine your inner condition. The world around you does not have power over the world within you. Many people’s circumstances dictate their stances. They become powerless victims of other people’s actions and attitudes. The truth is, you do not always have power over what happens to you, but you do have complete control over what happens in you. You can choose to overcome. You can choose to get past something. You can choose to not let it control you and destroy you. If you need help learning how to make the choice to not let your circumstances control you in a negative way please come talk to Mrs. Warren at lunch.
