How did you feel when you first heard or read the expression, “you are the captain of your soul?”
It struck fear in my heart, when I heard this in church as a young child. I had no benchmarks for what it meant to “be the captain of your soul” except for religious personalities, famous humanitarians and potential suffering. This was not my map for life as an inquisitive and sensitive 11 year old. I did think it was important, but didn’t know how to deal with it.
