Control, the desired frontier. What is so appealing about being in control? What are we really in control of in our lives? So many questions and only one answer. We have no control of others, vacations, travels, snow people, throwing up or the future.
An addict/alcoholic wants to control their usage and everyone else around them. Addicts want to control what everyone sees, hears, and feels. A boss wants to control their employees. An employee wants to control their bosses.
If we are not in control; who is? Is there control or is it all just random circumstances that at times appear coincidental? Is there luck, either good or bad?
When I hear someone say they will try to do something, either on time, or at all, I think it is an effort to control what I see, hear, or feel.
