    I believe you control your life to some degree, but then when it involves others life you have to share control. By coming out of the closet, I am happier, but the fact I’m not with the boy I love, is not my own fault, I have done what I can, but he doesn’t feel the same. I control my life to the extent I can, but at some point you have to let others have an effect. Would it really be a good life if you were completely alone in it?

  2. Nic:

    Being in control actually mean “controlling what you are ABLE to control”… thus putting the opinions or love of other people out of our reach.
    I think I’ve taken control of most of the aspects of my life, at least for some time… and in certain ocasions it’s not very nice the fact of being self-responsible.

  3. moca:

    Although we don’t have control over the situations outside of us, things like other people or random accidents, we do control how we react. It is a hard thing to realize but once one takes control of their own reactions and emotions and the like, life is completely in their control, even if the world isn’t.

  4. It reminded me a quote:

    “God grant me the serenity to accept
    the things I cannot change;
    the courage to change the things I can;
    and the wisdom to know the difference.”

    ~Reinhold Niebuhr, The Serenity Prayer

    Not that care about the DEGREE 😉
    I think it’s all about balance.
    As long as I am living the best out of my moment while following the natural flow of life, I am gonna be OK :)

  5. valerie:

    I am in control of choices and reactions to life situations.
    I am not sure that I can put a number/degree/percentage on that.

  6. sometimes i feel like i dont have any control over my life…………… i just go through the motions!

  7. Only my choices.

  8. Romer Jed:

    Hmm, I think I have controlled a good portion of my life concerning my actions and surroundings, but there are a lot of things that have occurred that was out of my control and some of the times I had to sit on the sidelines and watch it all unfold…no matter how badly I wanted to change the course of things.

    But yeah, I couldn’t give you an exact estimate or number, but I have some control over what occurs.

  9. Devon:

    So far up to this point in my life, I have controlled everything i do. I have the free choice to do anything and everything i want to do, I just have to realize the consequences of my actions. One may say that school isn’t an option, that “I have to go to school.” I feel that in fact one does not have to go, if one doesn’t want to go to school, then one can just not go to school. However, one must realize the consequence of not accepting an education.

    Up to this point in my life i have made every single choice that was to be made, and have rightfully accepted the consequence. The consequence, or outcome of my choices i feel are fully determined by an ultimate sense of luck or chance that is entirely out of the control of any physical or spiritual being.

  10. It all depends on perception.

    A year ago, I made certain decisions that if I hadn’t I’d still be stuck with those problems. But since then, I’ve let things fall into place.
    That’s all because my mindset drastically altered after those events.

  11. Megan:

    None. If I had control, things owuld be different.

  12. April:

    Unsure. I make my own choices, but?

  13. Nick:

    When choosing my college major.

  14. GCD:

    0%- I am a function of nature and nurture. Every decision “I make” is a reaction to the way I was brought up

  15. Rowena:

    In our life, what happens is OUR choice. We can choose to listen or not to listen. We can choose to do something or not to do something. You may ask, do the consequences or the outcomes rule what we choose? Now, that’s for YOU to decide.

    Why do you do what you do?
