People do seem to have very complicated lives. Perhaps it’s an inevitability that as you get older you get more and more tangled up in it but I like to think we are a little more in control of our destinies than that.
I know that some people draw complication in like a compulsion as if they can only feel comfort in a Greek tragedy of a life or possibly an episode of the Bold and the Beautiful. I have also met many people that live calmer lives by looking inwards and untangling themselves one string at a time. This is only a part of it though as a positive attitude does only get you so far and after that it’s all blind luck.
