If there ever was someone who had a control over you, someone who could cause you the greatest pain, someone who could ignore your most necessary requirements and someone for whom forgiveness were truly difficult to render, that person is none other than YOU.

Stephen Richards
About This Quote

You are more powerful than you think. You have more control over your life than you may first realize. The amount of power that any one person has over another is extremely limited, but if you ever find yourself in a situation where you feel you have no control over your life, it is time to take stock of your situation and take action.
