I can't control what others do and neither can you.

There are days, sometimes, where things seem to spiral out of control. Or out of my control.

When I am to blame; when I am at fault, then I have to take it on the chin and try to right the wrong the best way that I can. It is important to acknowledge when something hasn't worked and make an effort to change things.

But when it doesn't matter what you do, when it is the actions of others around you that mean things are spiralling out of control, that's when it is hard.

I find that on days like this I worry. I strategise in my head about how to fix things. I focus on different scenarios about how things might happen. I make myself stressed. I don't sleep.

There has to be a better way.

We need to self-talk. We need to make sure that when it is something we don't have any control over, that we recognise it and don't take any blame on our own shoulders.

We have to acknowledge, out loud, that there are some things that happen that are out of our control. That there are things we aren't responsible for.

Only when we do that, can we move forward.
