How you respond
I can be such a controlling person and I think my anxiety has something to do with it. I’m not even sure why I like to have control. Maybe a very skilled therapist could find the root of this problem.
However, something that I really need to work on is how I react. When you cannot control what is happening, control how you respond. For that is where your power is.
When things get hectic and out of control you can typically only control how you respond. For instance, if you overreact or react badly, things can get worse. Typically in my experience, they get way worst.
However, if you grab the metaphorical bull by the horns and own the situation you can probably gain control of the situation much faster. Also, reacting in a positive manner typically provides more positive results.
I’m guilty of not acting in a positive manner…..who else is guilty?
