You Need to Stop Being Such a Control Freak

Are you a control freak yourself?
August 18, 2017

First of all, what's a 'control freak'?
It's a person who feels obligated to impose their veto on himself as well as others so that everything is perfectly in place. It's an eternally anxious person who has no clue how to manage their stress. Basically, a control freak is an over-excessive perfectionist.

Are you a control freak?
Do you set an alarm for 7:45 to brush your teeth, then for 7:47 to put on your moisturizer etc.? Do you always arrive three hours in advance to an appointment and plan your summer holidays in September? Do you have a nervous breakdown if your man is wearing his tie wrong? If you said yes to all these questions, then you're probably addicted to control.

How to get rid of this burden?
First, you have to determine how severe your symptoms are. If this flaw isn't particularly harming your life and your relationships, you should try the letting go test. It's very simple: sleep two more hours tonight, eat this hamburger with your fingers, disable your useless alarms. But for those who suffer from OCD, it's completely different; you need to consult a psychotherapist who will eventually help you to get rid of your 'control freak' side. Basically, you need to chill!
