I don’t know one person who has never felt like this. And if you haven’t, there will come a time when you will. The key is knowing how to handle it when your life feels completely out of control.
The truth is, there will be times you are not in control of your life. People will make decisions that will affect your future. Illness will strike. Your job will be eliminated, or a new opportunity will make itself known. It’s during times like these you need to focus on what you have control over.
You have control over the decisions YOU make.
You have control over how you react to your situation.
You have control over what thoughts you allow into your mind, whether you fertilize those thoughts and let them grow, or whether you reject them before they turn into bitterness and resentment.
If you are feeling like this, here’s what I suggest. Take a piece of paper. On the left side write down how you’re feeling. “I’m not in control!” or “I feel so out of control!” On the right side write down what you are in control of – your thoughts, your decisions, whatever it may be.
