    How to use "Beyond one's control" in context?

    There are things that we cannot control and there are things that we can. In life, we sometimes feel as if we are cursed with bad luck or that we are victims of fate. We try our best to remove ourselves from situations beyond our control but oftentimes, we find that we cannot. Our fortunes, the emotions of others, and the strokes of fate often factor into our lives in ways that we could never have predicted. What we can control, however, is how we react to these uncontrollable events. We can choose to let them consume us or we can use them as an opportunity to grow and learn.
