Have you ever felt like you are not in control of your life? I know I have. But don’t worry; it’s not our fault. Someone is controlling our lives, every twist and turn and decision we make, they always seem to be there.
You see, there was a picture of how I thought my life would play out, but this is not it. I put on a brave smile for the sake of others and try to act happy about all I have achieved, but none of this is what I wanted; not this job, relationship, or anything else. It is like I am living someone else’s life.
All I want to do is leave everything behind and pursue my dream – you know, that dream you once had until you pushed it aside for “more important things” – but every time I try to follow through something stops me. I am sabotaged at every turn because of other people. Everyone seems to have their own opinions on the way I should live my life and which path I should take – if only my opinion mattered.
Why am I not in control? Why can I not live the life I want to live? What is stopping me? Or, who is stopping me?
The Puppeteer is out there. I can feel the pull of its strings guiding me. But how can I fight back and reclaim my life when I do not know who it is?
