    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.

    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...

    O.J. Simpson Will Pay For This!

    I was in college when O.J. Simpson's murder trial was going on. The public's obession with the case was as compelling as the case itself. On the day the verdict was announced, student's gathered in the school's campus center to see it on T.V. Hundreds of students gathered in a...

    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...

    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.
