SOMETIMES, WE HAVE TO SURRENDER. WE SIMPLY LOSE CONTROL SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY. WE fight against some things in life and it is a battle. We continue to try any option available creatively or otherwise, and end up with the same results we had before we tried to change something. The power of surrender even in the face of loss is sometimes a win.
For example, some of us simply don’t have control over recreational use of alcohol. We constantly abuse alcohol when we drink and try to control it but we can’t. We do everything possible to continue drinking, ultimately proving to ourself we simply don’t have control over. The best thing we can do is surrender. Have you ever heard this saying? “To repeat the same behavior over and over again getting the same result is the definition of insanity”. I have found this statement to be true. There are many things in life we simply cannot control. We may try every avenue to continue to try to control these things, and many different avenues we pursue to continue doing what the small side of us which can be so powerful.
We ultimately, after fighting as hard as we can we must surrender and are simply powerless sometimes over something or someone. The most powerful thing we can do in this situation is surrender. Our own ego can’t stand it when we view as losing. I believe those who can accept defeat when the consequence of continuing a behavior that is harmful to us or others, can be viewed as a loss but to lose gracefully and accept what we can’t change allows us to be a winner in the end.” Many people in abusive relationships who admit defeat and realize we cannot change another’s behavior, is called “hitting bottom”. In cases like this, the best thing we can do is to surrender. Let’s take a look at the. meaning of surrender.

Surrendering can be one of the hardest things we do in life. Sometimes there are addictive forces at play like power, temporary rewards ultimately ending in disaster for us or others. However, there is great power often found when we finally surrender to something that is harmful or destructive. We find we are stronger with acceptance verses denial. We find a certain inner strength when we are able to accept loss surrendering for the greater good of ourselves.
