Your Desire For Control Is Super Normal and Totally Absurd​​

I get it, we all want things to go a particular way. We get this image in our heads about how things might go, we dream, or we imagine. Part of what makes us so incredible is our ability to imagine, plan, and execute.

Just look at the pyramids, the Suez canal, the vast and complex organization of vaccine distribution. Sure it’s problematic but it’s incredible all the same.

So your desire for control is totally normal. Nothing could be more human than a desire to have things go a certain way.
