The Need To Control

Why do we seek to control and micro manage?

Why do we so easily adopt the “my way is the only way” mantra?

Why is it that someone who doesn’t like to be loud and obnoxiously dominant as being weak and ignorant?

Why is that that letting go and trusting that others are just as capable as you are, is an incredibly difficult thing to do?

Is it that our egos are so ridiculously inflated?

Is it because we don’t trust each other as human beings to come through for one another?

Is it just something that is built into our system?

I struggle with this, both as a person who needs to control but also as a person who often gets stifled by those who are controlling and dominant.

I am working on one side of it though – I always remind myself that “life will be a lot less stressful if I let go and have faith” but what do I do about the controllers?
