Do you believe that we can control other people?

Every year, almost every month I understand better and better I have zero control over other people, their thoughts and actions.

Few years ago I started diving deeper into ;(I believe buddhists started that) buddhism theory, that we control only ourselves. And there’s no need even to try to control the environment.

Of course there are some exceptions like dictatorship. But we, “average people”(I hate this term) actually probably do not have control over anything. (Except ourselves)

Your thoughts?

My advice is, dont trust religion. Its a thousands of years old concept - that will only bind you and make you feel guilty.

The only reason you dont have control - is because you have given that power away.
