Power and Control, what are these two things used so often in our lives? Are they two sides of the same or are they completely different?
They are not the same thing, they do differ from each other. But, control is power and power is control.
Think about it.
The more you ponder over it, the more you see the truth in it. They are definitely not equivalent. One tends to imply the other. They bounce to and fro like a rubber ball stuck between two walls, bouncing continuously.
In the same way, once we realize this, we can start this reaction for real. Start it by imposing control on oneself. We would not want to escape from this control just because the power is in our hands. This is what real self control is; adjusting the reaction between power and control like a third party, who is the one who can stop and launch the ball once again.
