This is how I deal: I am using my belief system to reach a place where I realize that having control is just an illusion.

Then why try? Why work one day more in a job you dislike?... if you quit it will have no impact as you have no control! ... or anything else for that matter, what you do doesn't matter if you have no control... have another drink and be merry!!!

I do appoligize if I missunderstand where you are coming from.

I have trouble understanding a philosophy wherein you give up (or recognize lack of) all control.. why think about beliefs if you have no control?

It seems much more healthy to me to identify what you do and do not control (or influence) and focus your energy on affecting those things that you do have control (or influence) over.
