Surrendering Control

“Sometimes the only way I can determine whether I’m trying to control someone… is by noticing how many times I say the same thing. If I am satisfied only when the other person… agrees with that I’ve said or takes my advice – then I know I’ve lost my focus.” -Courage to Change

When I read this, my first thought was how others do this to me. The fact is, I’ll never change them, but I can work on me. Today I’ll try to not tell, ask or suggest something more than once to someone else. In practicing this awareness I will actively decrease the fear that causes me to want to control others. ILML :-)
