Is your life internally or externally controlled...

As I've read thru these threads over time, it seems there are two broad types of people here...

those who feel in control of their destiny and believe their lives are mostly a function of decisions they have made in their lives, for themselves...lets say that they would say 90% of where they are in the lives - health, happiness, career etc...is a result of internal forces, or decisions they were in control of and made that led them to where they are now...these people believe others are also in control and responsible for where they are in life

then there are those that seem to believe that the external forces, forces they have no control over, influence where they are in life to a much greater degree...so maybe they would say 70% is due to their life choices and 30% is due to factors they have no control over...these people believe others are also not in control are victims of where they are...

The imagery is the person who exercises and eats rights and is healthy and takes control and responsibility, vs the couch dweller eating junk food and whining incessantly about genetics that cause their weight issue...

Let me guess. The people who are internally controlled (i.e. the better people) are the ones whose beliefs are largely the same as your own, and the externally controlled (i.e. the junk food crowd) are the ones that hold beliefs opposite you.

As an FYI, our own right-wing Stormfront_Stu claims it is genetics that separate the races and, in his words, why some races are low performing savages and whites are at the top of the heap. Would you disagree completely with Stu? I would hope so.

Trump is the monster created by irresponsible right wing rhetoric.  The GOP wanted to ride that wave as long as possible to fire up the base ... not realizing what they'd get when they unleashed the beast. He's the dictator those who find self governance too difficult have been waiting for.

You can't even use grammatically correct English when you try. Hard to take you seriously.

In answer to the OP: Both. It is not an either/or issue.

I simply laugh at your stupidity. You try to support Trump and be a loyal Trump-slave and right-wing drone, but you make your side look (even more) ridiculous (than it already is). With friends like you the Trump-slaves will have to triple up their 2020 efforts.

In general I'd say i'm the former...I I don't like something I change it...Most of where I am today, good and bad, is a function of choices I've made...

There are clearly things outside our control - health often - just saw a story of parents with a downs syndrome kid and then got leukemia and passed away...(the comedian)...and he now has MS...BUT he is very positive and trying to help others go thru very difficult times...

I suppose I wrote this as when I read through peoples posts, its pretty clear to see where they fall on the spectrum.....
