    I am having a hard time with something

    and it is a little scary for me. After my break up with my ex, I had met another guy, he was really charming and adorable well so I thought. Again I met him on an app and well the rest is history and not that important. Why? Well I'm not that in love with him as he is in love...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
