To Control and Be Right

“Each person is like an actor who wants to run the whole show… if only people would do as he wished, the show would be great. Everybody, including himself, would be pleased. Life would be wonderful.” – AA, 60-61

Secretly, I want to control it all. I think I know best. I wish they would help me help them by just doing it my way. Sound familiar? Looking back, this desire to control and be right has been at the root of many dysfunctional interactions and relationships in my life. Today I’ll be aware when those righteous know-it-all thoughts crop up and keep my mouth closed so that I can play nice with others. ILML!
