Control (again) or the lack thereof

I just found out something that I thought was a non-issue. There are multiple levels of trust and, to me, they are all just as important as the generic trust in what you do. How you do it, when you do it and who does it affect are just as important to me as the end result.

When I got to the office last Monday my boss pulled me in and flat out asked if I had added users manually to a class because there were problem with it. He cited my "it's better to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission" philosophy as a cause for a concern that he's had for a year, ever since I was given access to manage users on the system, that he was concerned about my having that level of access. My first thought was "why the fuck did you give it to me to begin with?"

I have to keep reminding myself what's the Course Of Action and what do I need to do to accomplish the goals listed there.

There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they're necessary to reach the places we've chosen to go.
