Great word this weekend from the “Pleasers, Perfectionists, Procrastinators and other people like me” series. Control Freaks is the topic. So which are you? I really identify with all of them at one time or another but recently I seem to fit into the “Worry wart“. Seriously, have I always been that way and just never noticed?
Just in the past year I have really began to experience the consequences for being a control freak. I seem to be very frustrated, fatigued and honestly feel like I am failing. So what now? Lately, I feel like God is just trying to show me how to do well with what I have been given, with what is right in front of me. Make sense, but harder than it sounds. My mind tends to stay 2-5 years ahead of where we are and if I/we are not making progress towards those goals, dreams and the vision then I panic. Still working on this and other things. Feel better just writing it down though. Peace.
Oh yes, types of Control Freaks just in case you can’t read my writing:
- The Intimidator
- The Perfectionist
- The Worry Wart
- The Uber-Planner
- The Anti-Planner
- The Master Manipulator
- The Micro Maniac
- The Opinionator
