The everyday Masters – Part 4

Author: Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho

Here’s another entry of my friend’s diary about her everyday masters.

Avoiding keeping control or being controlled

If I react the way that people expect me to, I become a slave to them – and that is a lesson that applies both to love and work. It is very difficult to prevent this from happening, because we are always ready to please somebody, or to start a war when we are provoked, but people and situations are the consequences of the life that I have chosen, not the other way around.

Tomorrow, I will publish another entry.
