    Enough Of That Crap!

    My dad is the king of manipulators.  He had me so tied in knots I was terrified to even think about rebelling.  Eventually I did...but the cost was awful high. That's okay.  I'm on my own and free, working to shed the mental bindings that still hold me.On the plus side...

    Don'T Like Being Controlled...Unless Maybe It Is In The Bedroom....

    Sometimes, not always...I think we all need to be controlled just a little or maybe a lot. We need the ultimate release that will follow!

    I Know What I'm Doing

    I don't want to be controlled by anyone, especially in deciding about what to do and what is not. I have my own mind and I know what is right or wrong and whatever circumstances I will face in the near future they are not the one who will suffer but only me.

    As much as I love my parents sometimes I can't

    stand them either because I feel they are constantly trying to find ways to control me, and in their eyes it's "justified" because I live under their roof. Before it used to be "because you're not an adult, you're underage." Now that I'm no longer "underage" it's because I live...

    -.-

    I hate being ordered. Now I pretty won't mind doing things that people ask that aren't stupid, illegal, or far fetched.  But I draw the line at being ordered.  If you want me to do something, >ask< don't order.  If I say no, chances are I wouldn't do it even if you tried...

    Time To Cut The Strings

    We all have to be in charge of ourselves. Some of us are just afraid to take control and that is kind of sad. Letting someone run your life for you will not yield optimal results, we were born free spirits and when that spirit is tethered, one is not able to realize the full...

    I Am A Person Too.

    I don't need to be told what to do, nor do I want to tell others what to do. I understand if you ask for the help or your in a situation with your boss at work, other then that I should have control of my situations. I appreciate hearing other peoples ideas, but that does not...

    I Can'T Conform

    It amazes me how some people can adjust to oppressive or controlling authority so easily..I just can't do it. Even if I'm forced to do it, I'll find someway or something such that I never give a 100 % in doing that. I never do what I'm 'supposed' to do, I don't fit in any cliche...

    I Am Being Controlled And I Need You.

    A lot of EP-ers will read a contradiction in the title I think, of course I hope I am wrong and they don't. What I really hope it says, regarding my English not to be my first language ;-) , is that I need you and me to get back in control. With that I mean being in control of...
