God has seen fit to bless me with removing a very stubborn layer of pride that I had. I feel an immense sense of relief and even some joy today. I realized very clearly that I am responsible for my happiness and that being stubborn and issuing ultimatums in regards to other people's behavior toward me is very unproductive. I would not like it if someone gave me an ultimatum. Ultimatums are an act of desperation to maintain control. I have realized that I do not know what is best for others. I can offer help or support if I am asked but to think that I know what is best for another's process is foolish and prideful. I am thankful that God set me straight about this and I am looking forward to having more harmonious relationships with others. Radical humility is a very good thing.
