Leren Lijden

I was recommended to read the book “Leren lijden” by Martin Appelo. In his book, he explains different forms of suffering, and he talks about how to identify and deal with them. In the book, there was a prayer to illustrate the difference between fighting and surrendering, I found this very applicable.

Give me the strength and courage to change the things I can.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
And the wisdom to know the difference.
