    We Are All Under Forces Tha...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
