    We all go through times of stress and sad times. What is a simple, yet profound saying that you have reminded yourself of to make these troubling times easier? You don't have to believe in a literal God, just that there are higher thoughts within us that we all are able to draw from.

    The one that has worked the best for me is:

    "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    the courage to change the things that I can,

    and the wisdom to know the difference"

    What is yours? Brad

    Have you found this worked in practise? In your life, I take it you are an ex-jw?

    Brad, maybe I've been de-sensitized, but actually I don't feel any stress at all. Not about being unemployed, not about the war, not about whether my everlasting life is in jeapordy because I'm no longer a Bible-thumping literalist.

    So, what works for me is not any particular phrase, but rather the practice: Love God, and love my neighbor (as myself). Not just 2 laws, really, but three. And it's that last one that I now, for the first time in my life, feel comfortable with.

    Definitely it has worked for me, but the wisdom to know the difference part took a long time for me to figure out!!!!!!

    And yes, I am an ex-JW, df'd in 1991, vowing never to go back in 1994.

    For me it is the pagan/witches creed

    "If it harm none, do what thou will"

    It can really make you think.
