Limits





Proper adjustment in life can be achieved only on the basis of acceptance of one’s own finiteness…We need not fear failing. Only God never fails and never makes a mistake…Such attempts to build security by our own efforts will always lead to increased anxiety…We are not, cannot be, and need not be God. God does not expect us to be God. Satisfaction and happiness lie in wait for us if we accept this fact; disappointment and frustration if we do not.
