Hi Alexandra,

You are absolutely right that controllers (and I am a reforming one!) are very uncomfortable with uncertainty. We worry about all the "what ifs" and "what might happens". I write extensively about control and a primary key to "decontrolling" ourselves is addressing and processing our fears. We need to separate the real facts from the nightmares our emotions script for us. Not easy for sure, but even partial success diminishes our fears and the need to control.



Your post made me realize there are others like me out there. I will let my wife read it too since she is the only one except me who have to deal with it every day. Thanks for your wisdom.

@Mike: You aren't alone at all. Most people I know face this problem to some degree.

@Danny: Great additions. Thanks so much for commenting!

One of my very favorite "letting go" quotes, which really emphasizes the positive aspect of letting go, is:

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."
~ Lao Tzu
