All the spiritual traditions say it: surrender.

Give up control.

Give up trying to control others.

For trauma survivors, this is the core of the “serenity prayer.”

The idea is that you’re supposed to give up control and then feel a sense of release/relief from whatever issue you’re clinging to.
