I admit there is often a need for flexibility. But what if there is a clash with discipline?

Treat yourself with discipline, but treat others with flexibility.

i cared too much thats why i got paranioded . i cared too much what others thought but i dont now!

Once I heard part of the Tao Te Ching translated like this: “Nothing under heaven is more pliable than water; but, when amassed there is nothing on earth that can withstand its strength. That the soft overcomes the hard and the yielding conquers the rigid is a fact know to all men, yet utilized by none.”

Or, you could go with Tony Stark’s quote in ‘Iron Man:’ “Stick to the plan!” :stuck_out_tongue:

I guess the question is when to bend and when to be rigid. I don’t know a simple answer to that question.
