Here is a philosophical question for any of the *b/dl folks out there who might be interested...
Who is really in control? In the morning sometimes I wake up with all kinds of ideas about what I plan on accomplishing that day, and then by the end of the day I often find that somehow things didn't go exactly as planned (or not even close). Many of us have experienced the "binge purge" cycle that comes with having *b/dl tendencies. One day you say to yourself, "enough already, I'm through with this," then the next day you find yourself back at it all over again.
It sometimes seems almost as if I am a sort of a spectator watching the movie of my life roll on by, with very little influence on what actually happens. Does anyone else ever have this feeling? If so, do you think I may be right, that we really may have less control in our lives than we would would like to imagine that we do?
Shakespear said that "all the world's a stage, and we are merely players on it." Could we merely be playing out roles that were written beforehand? If so, what is our responsibility for our lives?
