How easy it is to describe feelings of powerlessness!
There’s nothing I can do.
I can’t/I must.
It’s time they did something about it.
It makes me so angry.
I could weep when I see what they’re doing.
You can’t pick up the paper without getting angry or upset.
Everything I do turns sour on me.
Murphy was an optimist.
Everyone’s out for himself.
You can’t trust anyone.
They’ll stop you if they can.
Whatever I do someone will criticize – better keep my head down.
It’s just one of those things.
The rules are clear.
These are my orders.
