I’m listening to a song form an artist I’m going to feature in a few weeks on Front Range Radio, and the main character in the song, his life is basically determined by the roll of a dice by someone else, his fate is in the control of someone else’s hand.
How much is my life controlled by others? I mean beyond the federal, state, county and city laws on the books. I’m told what to do at my job, if I don’t show up my job is no more. I need a job for the paycheck. So I’m controlled by the need for money to just survive, have food and shelter.
In what other ways do I let others control me? Do I let opinions control me? Do I let rejection control me? How about the need for belonging?
How did it get to this point? Why do we let others control us in so many ways? We can say that we are not, but I don’t think we would be honest with ourselves.
