Peace Of Mind

strengths and weaknesses. It is enough if we learn to respect ourselves with all our shortcomings and achievements; to know that true love of self neither exaggerates its powers nor minimizes its worth.
The great thing is that as long as we live we have the privilege of growing. We can learn new skills, engage in new kinds of work, devote ourselves to new causes, make new friends. Accepting, then, the truth that we are capable in some directions and limited in others, that genius is rare, that mediocrity is the portion of most of us, let us remember also that we can and must change ourselves. Until the day of our death we can grow, we can tap hidden resources in our make-up.
Every person who wishes to attain peace of mind must learn the art of renouncing many things in order to possess other things more fully. As young children, our wishes were sovereign; we had only to wail and the adult world hastened to fulfill our every desire. But as we grow older we learn that every stage of human development calls upon us to weigh differing goods and to sacrifice some for the sake of others.
The young boy may vacillate between a dozen different plans for the future, but the mature man will have to renounce many careers in order to fulfill one. The same truth exists in the realm of emotions. It is fitting for the adolescent to transfer his love interest from one object of affection to another, but it is tragic when the grown man still plays the role of the adolescent. The man trying to wear youth's carefree clothing, the woman costuming her emotions in doll's dresses-these are pathetic figures. They have not yet learned that human growth means the closing of many doors before one great door can be opened-the door of mature love and of adult achievement.
The first fundamental truth about our individual lives is the indispensability of love to every human being. By "love" I mean relatedness to some treasured person or group, the feeling of belonging to a larger whole, of being of value to others.
