If life is a highway, then our lives are a car on that highway.
Is your car an “autonomous” vehicle that you have no control over?
Is it part of a long progression following where the car in front of you goes?
Or, are you behind the steering wheel, choosing which lane you take?
When you allow someone or something else to control your life, you are letting someone else drive your car.
And you may not like the destination that they take you to.
