Unexpected Guests -Psychology: Reflection of Controlling the Environment

You walk into your home to find a couple you don’t know sitting in your living room, eating a slice of cake. Tell us what happens next.

I would get out of the door, look from outside the house and check whether it is really my house. Then if it is I would probably get nervous and confused what they are doing in my house. I would politely ask them who they are and what they are doing in my house while holding a revolver behind my back (revolver is easier to operate and rarely have problem, unlike automatic 9mm handgun). What happen next would be depended on the response I’m getting.

I want to share some reflection of myself on this post, as an introvert I don’t really do well with people. Of course I chat with my friends in school but I barely have a deep connection with them, I mean it’s just feel like he/she is there but he/she is not being present. If you know what I mean….

People often said they love to be surprised, like birthday party for example, but I don’t. I don’t like unexpected things happening around me, or I should say, I prefer to have things under control. But of course that’s not how the world works, right? The world is full of unexpected events happening, change happens from time to time, whether we like it or not.

What I actually learned is we can’t control everything around us (like spouse, children, accident), but when we could control something, we should use the power appropriately. That way, we will grow and enhance our self esteem, knowing that we do the best we can do, and even if we failed, there would be no regret.
