I know a woman who lives her life as if everything is out of her control. Somehow, her upbringing prepared her for a life on the stage that is the grand drama that is Life. She will say things like, “God is testing me” when things aren’t going well. It’s her religion and her religious truth.
My life is not like that at all, but there are times when I, too, could see myself on the stage in some kind of Greek drama or comedy of errors. But life isn’t like that; life isn’t a comedy or a drama. Unless you have entirely no sense of humor, life is both that and more.
