Controlling

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness.Thich Nhat Hanh

Being controlling is a way to create security.  It is born from a chaotic past.  The problem is that when we get lost in trying to control everything, we are holding on so tight we can’t enjoy life. We don’t allow the beauty of life to naturally unfold and we dam up the flow of our own lives. The truth is that the feeling of control is an illusion. We have little to no control over people & events. The more we tighten the strings, the tighter and more constricted we become.
