"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
The serenity prayer can help most anyone through the toughest of times. The prayer helps to separate what we can change and what we can control. Use the prayer to help get through the daily and academic stress that influence the drive to “play hard.” The prayer might bring relief during a life crisis and be a source of support.
Weigh decisions and emotions and remember the easiest solution is immediate gratification of the urge. The healthy solution takes maturity, strength, courage, growth and patience. Place trust and value in yourself.
