Choose Well

 People who push others around are often driven by a need for power. It takes a conscious decision to bully.  Taking pleasure in having power over, and controlling, others is a choice. #LeadersArentBullies "We cannot always control everything that happens to us in this life, but we can control how we respond. Many struggles come as problems and pressures that sometimes cause pain. Others come as temptations, trials, and tribulations." - L. Lionel Kendrick #stepup
