That’s one of my main goals of 2017 is to make this series more regular. At least a few a month. Ok, realistically, at least one a month. A few would be great though.

Motivational Monday | Dealing with Depression (Pt. 3)

When you accept responsibility for other people’s decisions you take on a burden that will only depress you. At best you can influence people but you can’t control them. The final decision is theirs, so don’t let yourself get down over something that you can’t control.
