Do you have to be in control? Do you get stressed and uncomfortable if you are not running things? Of course we all need some control in our lives but if we need too much control it can actually cause us a lot of stress.
We need to be able to bend and flex, to adapt to change, listen to others, let others have their say and let others do things their way. It is one thing to control yourself but do you interfere and try to control others. This can cause a lot of stress because relationships are tested and put under immense pressure. When we try to control others we are undermining their choices, sending the message that we know best and that they know least. Of course we can share our thoughts, if asked but we need to take a step back to let other’s make their own choices. I always try to remember that we are on different paths and need to make different choices….we are not all living the same life. We need to create our own way and be true to ourselves.
Do you find it hard to let other’s make their own way? Do you feel stressed if you are not in full control? What tips do you have to let go and let others be? Do you have people in your life that try to control you? Love to hear from you….
