Or do they control you. If so, What things could you do to get better control of them. Or do you perhaps see circumstances as uncontrollable.

I would like to think I have control over the things in my life, but I would be indifferent to the truth of the matter. While I think I have a certain control over certain issues in my life, I know who holds the complete control. It's all up to 'the man upstairs', understanding we all have to do our part. I'm currently doing the best I can do with the situations handed me Impervious. I think that's pretty good.

Speaking of the man upstairs. He did give us free will, and with that comes the question, Why would he give us free will if he were going to control our lives.

It's not a matter that He controls my life. It's a matter that I let Him. If He doesn't have a certain control, then who does? It's certainly not me, although I understand your question. It's certainly not Satan either. As I said, It's that I choose to give Him control. Afterall, who knows best? Me or Him?

Circumstances are uncontrollable, but, you do control how you react to them and how you let them affect you.

I think not. I think that we exert an influence on the circumstances that we face.

I feel things in your own life are controllable but things outside of your own life are pretty much out of your control. you just need to live everyday to the fullest

I control the circumstances in my life if I can. Some things are beyond our humanly control. I am the one who handles everything that happens around my home in most cases. I try not to let things that happen take total control over me. I will work around anything that happens or arises and I will deal with it to fix it or eliminate what is happening. Some circumstance take control of me because I do not know how to fix them at the time. I do not let them stay in control of me though. I will figure out some way to get rid of the problem. I ask others for advice and sometimes I call places or look things up online to find out how to deal with certain circumstances. I never let a circumstance keep total control over me. Some circumstance seem to be uncontrollable, but you have to be willing to take a step toward making them controlled.
