Do you feel that strong urge to control everyone and everything that goes around you? Perhaps you need to read this through and become less of a control freak that you know you are. You need to bring your body and mind back to rest from that high alert mode, and let go of all that tension. You should accept that nothing is ever going to be exactly like you want it to be and spending energy in trying to make it that way will only make you more angry and frustrated.
If you are a control freak, you will fight with yourself to change for the better. You would want to be more organized, and you will definitely need to feel that you have covered it all. Perhaps you will fight with others to follow what you say. You’ll think of yourself as a perfectionist, while others will simply label you as a control freak.
Remember, if you have that unnecessary urge to control things and people around you, you will be so full with anger, frustration and ill will that you won’t have any room for love, intimacy or any such emotions. You need to understand that what you need is positivity in your life rather than control.
Here’s How You Can Become Less of a Control Freak
It takes less energy to let go than to control everything
You need to learn to let go. It will make you feel free and liberating. You need to let go of control to let your happiness blossom, and to make sure people start liking you again so that you can be yourself once more.
Start with letting go of little things which aren’t life-threatening. The bed can always be made a little later, the grass can be cut later and the calls can be returned after some time. When you plan something, keep room for errors and relax in the middle. Remember letting go and being able to do so is very important.
You need to stop moving and thinking, and instead start feeling. Yes, you cannot control emotions and you shouldn’t try to do so either. Letting go is necessary in terms of emotions as well. Why don’t you do something what you truly desire rather than opting for things that you think need to be done? You need to relax and breathe deeply and let that control go away to feel more connected in your life.
