Control. You cannot control everything, for some things cannot be predicted or changed. One individual cannot dictate every aspect their life, for we are incapable of changing the weather, and we are unable to anticipate everything around us. Just like you cannot stop a divorce. In 2014 my parents got a divorce, and I felt the concept of control slip from my grasp. I had no say in this event that would change my life. Though I stood strong for my family, I found myself neglecting the things I could control. School took the hardest hit, even though I knew I could control my grades, I pushed the stability away. I felt as if I had more power over my life if I made the predictable uncertain before they became unreliable on their own.
