Some days I don't feel like myself...

I feel kind of, what's the word ..... Meshy.

I feel like there's somebody out there controlling my motion.

I feel like there's sombody out there who makes my decisions for me.

This niggling feeling that somehow this is all just a big game.

And this got me to thinking...

Let's just imagine that there really is somebody out there pushing my buttons....

Lets's just imagine that there really is somebody out there making me jump....

.... and shoot
.... and kill
.... and run ?

And then let's also imagine that it's not maybe just one solitary person pushing my buttons.

.... Maybe there are millions of people all working to control me.

.... Maybe there are millions of people all working to make me do all these things that a girl has to do.

And well...

If that were true then just think....

They wouldn't be controlling me at all....

... I'd be controlling THEM

This in extract from Lara's Book, a friend of mine bought it for me when he went on holiday to the states about five years ago. I just found it again in one of my drawers, and started to read it again, and thought this was a good passage.

Has any one else seen or read this book?
