Very funny. We want control don't we? We get so frustrated when things don't work the way we want them to. It seems sometimes that the forces of the universe are arrayed against us. Sometimes I find myself saying to myself "Life shouldn't be this fucking hard. What am I doing wrong to deserve this?" Then I laugh and realize it's not the universe aligned against me, it's my expectations and control issues that are causing me the problem. I realize I need to relax and quit trying so hard. There is a better way. I need to be patient and find it. thanks for this. I enjoy this blog very much and get so much out of it.
People who tend to be controlling can become easily frustrated, angry, discouraged, and depressed. Learning how to roll with the frustration and disappointment makes life more enjoyable.
