    I try to control everything in my life

    and everyone in my life. I tell my spouse what to do and then I tell him that he did that wrong. I try to control what my family does and what they think and if it is not my way it is the highway. I am sick of me.

    Control Freak Story

    First off, I am a control freak.  However, if there was a scale from 1-10, I'm not so sure how I'd be rated?  I've been married a little over a year but have been with my husband for 5 1/2 years now.  Since the beginning, he told me I was controlling, always...

    I Admit It

    I need to control everything but that bring me a lot of frustrations because there are things that are well beyond my control.  I am also trying to let go but it is not easy.

    Totally Depressed -- Definitely Controlling

    Hi. I don't really know where to start with this. I never thought before that I was controlling. I always thought I had another complex instead. Some sort of Nightingale syndrome. I'm not a nurse, but I seem to date people that have "problems" that I can help them with. I'm...

    Let Go...let God!

    I try to be in complete control over my destiny but all things cannot be anticipated or controlled.  I had to learn the hard way but now that I've learned to let go and let God; my life is so much more relaxed.
