Trying to fix something that ain’t broke…
When someone doesn’t do what I hope, what I plan, what I expect them to do…When they don’t do something that is consistent with an imagined scenario in my own head I try to find ways to affect the chain of events. To change what I think the outcome is…even if there hasn’t been an outcome yet.
Whether I know the person or not, my mind strings stories together, gets preoccupied with what I would like to happen…or the time at which I would like to happen.
I can hardly believe how preoccupied I get with things that aren’t happening (or arent happening yet), and with things that I could not possibly know or foresee.
Why I keep myself hostage is beyond me.
