They say acknowledgment is the first step in recovery. Hopefully that’s true since I’m acknowledging myself all over the internet. I am a control freak. There I said it. Let the healing begin.
Control Freak: Noun. A person who feels an obsessive need to excise control and to take command of any situation.
I never thought I would actually call myself that. I thought about picking a different title, something more original, but then I realized that was just me trying to take control of the system. Oops.
And now here’s the best part: you get a front row seat to my journey as a control freak as I look back on my life and discover all the places where I was just a bit obsessive about taking the lead in a few situations. (Ok, maybe not just a FEW).
Carl Rogers described communication as a form of therapy. So, you all have just become my free therapists. Congratulations. I look forward to a beautiful friendship blossoming between us.
