Take control over your feelings, life, and circumstances! It’s a call for action, changing the world, and disobedience. Yet is this always possible? Does fate give us the right to decide anything, or are we puppets in its hands that still haven’t broken away from our leading strings, which are held with one’s firm and steady hand?
