“I can’t control their fear, only my own.” -Wanda Maximoff
We can not control other people; at best we can influence them. And the best way to influence another’s behavior is to model the behavior we wish them to exhibit.
We control our emotions and our actions. We all face terrifying situations whether it is your kid doing something dangerous or the person you love fighting an addiction or the economy. We can not change the world situation or lock the person away from bad influences, all we can do is gather our reserve and face the problem with whatever power we have. To conquer our own fears and face the monsters that stand before us and not allow them to feed off of our terrors to grow darker and stronger.
We inspire others when we face our fear and fight.
