Just relax and imagine if your spouse was unfaithful. It is a horrible thought and you probably will jump away from in within seconds.
You are afraid if you think about it, you will be like Elliot, fooled and stupefied, seeing things that aren’t there.
This is also true.
Many people accuse their spouse of being unfaithful when it isn’t true because of lack of confidence, fear, a small ego, etc.
The point is, you have no control over anything, in truth. You can’t control life or death or anything… save your reaction.
The only ‘control’ you have is over your reaction. Your reaction to a lie, to an injury, to a disaster, to an insult, that is your power. That is all you have.
All you control is how you react.
