    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.

    I Lost the Best Girl Ever

    Why can I not control the people

    who message me and are writing like my 4 year old nephew. I do not want a world without intelligent people but could these people please stop writing me. Is it some type of spam mail or something?

    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.

    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.

    O.J. Simpson Will Pay For This!

    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...

    Hi Guys

    I would have to say this is probably one of my biggest vices. I live off of to-do lists and schedules.  I make plans and do my best to stick with them.  I do everything in my power to run things "smoothly" whether events or relationships. But on the plus...

    I Hate Relying On People, For Anything.

     I'd rather put in more work to get something done, then let someone else do it. People are so careless these days. They're selfish, and only think of themselves.  Even if it takes me way longer to do something, let me do it. At least when I do it. It gets done...
