Addicted to control?

Being in charge is heady stuff. A shot glass of control can soothe the nerves.

Watch out!

It can be addicting!

And attractive!

After all, when I’m in charge I don’t have to wait, or compromise, or be patient, or let go, or lose. I don’t have to feel out of control and powerless—like I did as a little kid.

Not being in charge is scary stuff. What if someone says something or does something I don’t agree with and I don’t take charge? Then what?

Somebody needs to lead and to be in control. Otherwise, chaos reigns. How foolish!

Letting go, and saying “No,” to the need for that shot of control is tough.

How are you with it? Can you push it away? What are your challenges about it?
