    Trying To Do New Things..

    I'm No Ones Puppet.

     People try to control what I do and the decisions I make so that they can be "better" than me. Well, let me tell you something. I may be odd, but I'm my own d*mn person. I have my own opinions and I make my own decisions. Just because I don't do what you want me to do doesn't...

    What Am I Magical Or Something?!

    "What am I magical or something?!" is my personal catchphrase when I have this experience. I sometimes feel like one of those princesses from a fairy tale who gets captured and locked away. But my personality of course isn't so much damsel in distress. I'm very assertive and...

    Yes

    I don't really see the difference between being labelled "black", "woman", "mad" or whatever else. It's all the same disrespect and misunderstanding. People who are so narrow-minded themselves and never even try to broaden their vision upon the...

    Why Does Almost Everyone I Meet Try to Control Me?

    I am so tired of people I consider friends feel the need to tell me what is best for me.  I have had a best friend, or at least what I have always called my best friend... She was always the dominant one in the relationship since I have a rather submissive type or...

    Make friends and get support?

    then give me love and support and encourage me. But don't ever tell me what I need to do. Even the best therapists let people find their own way. I can tolerate advice as long as you let me keep my g*d given right to agree or disagree with it. Love does not control. Support...

    Control and Fear

    As I look back on my life, and the people who have wandered through it, it increasingly strikes me that the act of wanting to control others stems from fear. The question, then (I suppose) becomes one of "Why do I seem to attract fearful people?" I believe the fact...

    I love my family but they always try to control

    everything I do, sometimes it feels like they are trying to plan my life for me, it's driving me nuts. Im a grown woman, it's like they just don't get that and they get offended when I set boundaries, but I'm gonna keep on setting them and keep on loving them too.

    Puppet

    You know the movie Pinocchio and the scene where that evil puppet master is controlling him with the strings and then he ends up locking him in a cage? Well I can honestly say that's how I feel basically 100% of the time. I feel like a puppet on strings and the world and everyone...
