    Hi, I can absolutely relate. I’ve known i’m a control freak for quite a while and I’ve been trying very hard to step back and accept the things I can’t control. A lesson I’ve learned from dealing with my son, whose a recovering addict. I’ll have to admit it’s difficult and frustrating but I try, every day. Thanks for your article. I really enjoyed reading it.

      Yes, it’s such a hard thing to change because it’s our natural instinct to want to feel safe and secure. And addicts are so out of control and that we go into overdrive trying to keep them safe and sane. You aren’t alone!
      best wishes,

    Thank you very much for a helpful article. I have noticed that I’m a controll freak for a long time because I want things in the way that I wanted/planned(high expectations). I’m not doing ok with unexpected plans at all. I’m trying to use some of your coping skills and hopefully I can do/feel better.
