I am working on unlearning being controlling. I actually believed that I HAD to do all that I was doing, and that if i didn’t stay on top of others, that they might not do what I thought THEY HAD to do.
WOW, that was a lot of work. I was often exhausted and usually disappointed. Rarely, did things go exactly as I expected them to go, and rarely did others do what I thought they should.
Learning to live in ease and acceptance is so much simpler and joyful, and – yet, I catch myself slipping back into my old ways of trying to run the show. I become extremely uncomfortable and feel frustrated and misunderstood.
The good news, I can keep on practicing letting go, over and over again – and I DO!
