Our real concern with others should not be “Are they doing what I would do or what I want them to do?” but “Are they really making a free choice?”  When we accept others’ freedom, we don’t get angry, feel guilty, or withdraw our love when they set boundaries with us.  When we accept others’ freedom, we feel better about our own.  —Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend
