As the reigning dominant species in this world (lol), we’re lucky enough to be able to control a lot of what happens in our lives.
We control where we live. We control who our friends are. We control what we believe in. We control which parts of this earth we treasure, and which we destroy.
Hell, we’ve even taken to adopting animals so we can control them.
One of the few things we can’t control, however, are our emotions.
In my own life, there are a lot of feelings I wish I could control. For example, I wish I didn’t fall in love with a man who lives in another country. I wish I didn’t feel hurt so easily over mundane things. I wish I wouldn’t cry every time someone of authority talks to me, even if they’re only expressing a compliment.
So often, I just wish I had the ability to dull my emotions. Other times, I wish I could make myself feel more.
It’s like, I’ve come to terms with the things I can’t control: time, other people, etc. However, I just wish I could be in control of every aspect of my own body and personality.
