People who try to control every situation usually find themselves not well liked by others. Most often they are not aware how much people despise them because they are too involved in affairs that do not concern them, or trying to figure out how to maneuver circumstances to fit their agenda.
When folk feel like they have to control things outside of themselves, they are usually running away from themselves. They are afraid to manage their own lives and ready and willing to tell everyone else what they should and shouldn't do with theirs.
Or, they actually manipulate situations, instigate discord among others, or they withhold love and other needs from others until they do what they want them to do.
I am sick of control freaks. I really wish they would get a life.
