I didn't want to divert Annierose's thread by asking you about this, but I was wondering.

You said:

> Second, is the slow realization and final acceptance that we have almost no control over our lives. This is usually the greater of the two. All the break-ups, injuries, all the horrible and wonderful things that have happened. I've merely been one small part of the equation. Most of my life I've tried to fight that fact and force things to be the way I want them to be. And most of the time has only ended in frustration, depression, and anxiety.

Doesn't this mean that we actually have a fair amount of control over our lives? We can influence the cards we draw by our choices, but in the end they are out of our control. The control we have in our lives is how we play the cards we're dealt. And I see that as a not insignificant amount of control.
