  1. Self control is the only real control that is always available to you.
  2. Your pains and injuries repeatedly confront you with the decision of whether you are going to be a victim or a survivor.
  3. Love is a gift; it can only be given, never earned.
  4. Today is perfectly suited for being who you always wanted to be.
  5. Not worrying is not the same as not caring.
  6. True unity doesn’t demand conformity.
  7. “Self esteem” and “good judgment” are different sides of the same coin.
  8. Loving someone doesn’t result in always enjoying them.
  9. Your competence will usually be gained by making many mistakes.
  10. Your autonomy and individuality will often be gained by having to accept the disapproval of some of the people you love.
