I agree 100%. There are so many things in my life that have happened to me that were the choice of others and I have had to come to terms with those choices.
I am in the process of learning to try and live as if I have made choices that were different than the ones imposed: Trying to get my life 'back on track' - a track that I think I had freer access too before others' choices blocked off those routes.
I have just had a look at the poster for the film that the quote comes from "Gone Baby Gone". There is another poignant quote on the poster that is hitting home at the moment because - again - it so fits in with my experience. That quote: "Hope begins where the secrets end".
These two will go on my wall of quotes.
Ron I thank you for pointing the movie out - it will be one that I look out for in the rental shop.
I endured all my yesterdays. I prevail in all of my todays. I exercise my right to be able to enjoy my tomorrows. I choose not to do it alone.
