Today I want to talk to you about control but not our control, I want to talk about the control we give to others.
It is so easy to give away control whether we do it intentionally or not sometimes we are not even aware of it. It can take many forms beings mental, physical or emotional. Parents control children, teachers control students, one partner may control another and so and so forth.
But not only that, some people like to control and without it they panic and get stressed. This is when all sorts of emotions can come into play.
What we need to realise is we can only control so much, we cannot control everything or everyone and we shouldn’t.
And we certainly shouldn’t give someone power over us.
There will always be things in your life you feel like controlling or want to control and can’t. So don’t, let it be!
Have a sit down and ask yourself these questions:
– What do I feel I am trying to control in my life?
– Who do I feel I am trying to control in my life?
– Am I giving control away to someone else? If so, who? Why?
– How can I take back the control in my life?
Step up. Your life is yours. Claim it and make it your own. Don’t let others tell you how to live, what to do or wear and never ever let anyone put you in a box.
The only box you should ever be put in is your coffin, and that should be a long way off!
