I Don't Want to Be Controlled

    I Don't Have Any Power Over It!

    I don't like being controlled. Who does? But does it really matter when I cannot do anything about it. I am the prisoner of my thoughts and emotions. Mostly I am the prisoner of my heart! I let the ones I love control my life! I have given up my dreams to serve a life...

    You Are All Contrilled

    All of you here say you don't want to be controlled, yet I have received not one offer to buy my, evil space alien, control pills.  All of you know that the Evil Pushky is intent on implanting chips in your brains and controlling you so as to use you as human batteries and...

    Yeah

    I want to be free. I don't want to be controlled.. I remember what my husband told me. I have to listen to him. If he is right. I will listen. If he is wrong. No way. I'm a person too. I'm not a object.

    Not Anymore

    I'm very frustrated! I had this story all written out, clicked "Submit" and lost it all. I don't even want to talk about it anymore, now. Maybe later. Okay. I'm going to do it now. I've been in controlling relationships in the past. They were horrible. I almost wasn't...

    I know you, I see you,

    I don't care about you. Doesn't mean I'm going to let you die. All stay by you until you don't need me. I don't need you because I already have myself. I can't be the girl that gossips about people in school because I assure you I already know the whole story and of not what's...

    Heart And Mind

    No! I don't want to be controlled any more. I'm not some puppet on a string with the sole purpose of acting out his own desires. But wait. It's not the strings attached to my body he's pulling. It's those which are attached to my mind....those which pull and tug at my...

    We are all under forces that we can't control. Whether that be our faith, our government, or otherwise, we can not help but be controlled in some form. I don't like being controlled because it suggests that I'm not in control of my own destiny. I do believe in fate, however...
