Having a sense of control lies in our own innate capabilities.
We have to speak life into ourselves.
We have to give ourselves choices as God ordained them to us, which is our free will.
There is no one above the creator therefore, the creator ordains us.
Do not ever let anyone make you feel like they ordain or control you because it’s a possibility that you may internalize that, and it could actually become your reality!
Also, do not put your life into someone else’s hand unless it is a loved one that truly cares about you, and if you do so, make sure it is temporary and you show gratitude and appreciation to them in any form or fashion that you can.
Proverbs 23:7 King James Version (KJV)
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; But his heart is not with thee.
Proverbs 23:7 NIV
for he is the kind of person who is always thinking about the cost. “Eat and drink,” he says to you, but his heart is not with you.
We all thrive off of having a sense of control rather it be with our own selves or with people places or things.
It’s because we may feel like or actually lack a sense of control within our selves.
Having a sense of control starts with understanding that there is no one above the almighty creator as we all reign below.
We are all on the same playing field or in other words, we are all living on earth together.
We may not have been dealt the same cards, but we all have the same opportunity to make a way out of what seems like nothing.
Our choices depict what type of control we have over ourselves.
No one should be trying to control people, places, or things.
There are principalities that we can follow to be righteous and autonomous beings so that we won’t feel like we have to control others to feel powerful.
We are literal gifts from the creator, we were gifted life for us to even be able to exist on this plane.
We have to have integrity and virtues to protect our existence.
People who manipulate look for people who lack boundaries and security in themselves to take advantage and control them.
Evil do exist, and evil finds malicious ways to make you lose control of yourself to make you fall victim of its activities.
Your self control lies in the knowing that you do have to secure yourself and protect your self on mind, body, and soul levels.
Just as social engineering exists in a computing, it originally confided in reality first.
Social engineering, " is the psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information", according to Wikipedia.
We have to stop looking for validation outside of ourselves.
If a scenario keeps reoccurring in your life, it’s time to change the way you respond.
Looking for validation is exactly what is a part of programming. Programming is designed to write the code for how software and hardware operates. The program runs the same program until it has been manipulated in some or fashion whether it has been for an update or hacking purposes. Programming is dependent upon Input.
We have to be in control of our input meaning how we decide to be influenced, what we choose to watch, what we choose to eat, what we choose to drink, what we spend our spare time doing, who we choose to hang out with. We have to make sure we influence ourselves in healthy ways so that we can be built upon morals and integrity.
King James Version
3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
New international version
The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.
When we are guided by our virtues, we are able to maintain a sense of control over ourselves because we know what we will and won’t tolerate.
It is important that we take care of ourselves mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically so that we are able to maintain our integrity.
If we began to lose sight of our care, a social engineer, meaning a manipulative person has a possibility of altering how you think in order to drain you of whatever information they’d like.
I’ve learned that it’s important to monitor how you feel throughout the day and figure out where it is coming from.
Appreciate yourself for this if you’ve already mastered it!
Let your feelings guide you in this cruel world.
They will help you stay in tune with yourself.
Love, peace, and happiness
