The Anti-Serenity Prayer

Not sure who wrote this, so I'm stealing it from someone. But it was posted on another forum today and it made me laugh:

God grant me the anxiety
to try to control the things I cannot control,
the fear to avoid the things I can,
and the neurosis to deny the difference.

Yep, that about covers it!


  1. Bahahaha!! Oh, man. I have to laugh at the reality of that. I so love the Serenity Prayer, but this more closely resembles reality for me. For many of us, I'm sure.

  2. Ha,ha,ha!!! Love it! I'll have to remember that one and say it to myself the next time i notice i'm acting neurotic.

  3. Hahahahahaha. I laughed out loud at this. It's so true!!!!!

  4. Now there's a Serenity prayer that amuses me instead of annoying me (with "shoulds")
