    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 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.

    If I Don't Change, I'll Lose Everything That Matters

      My marriage is hanging by a thread for several reasons. One of the biggest reasons is because my husband feels like I control everything and that I need to lay off. objectively, I totally get what he's saying. If I go to bed early, I get so mad at him if he doesn't...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    O.J. Simpson Will Pay For This!
