Why control anyone?

I find it interesting, the number of people out there who are into control. You know what I mean, the person who feels they need to tell you what to buy, what to eat, who to hang out with, what color to use on your hair, what to read or even, how to wash your face.

Why is that I wonder? Is it a need to be important? Is it because they don't value anyone as much as they do themselves? Might it be because they felt unimportant as a child and have never dealt with their issues.

I suppose it comes from any number of things but, personally, I don't want to be controlled anymore than I want to control. Ask me my opinion and I'll give it to you. I don't expect you'll always agree or choose to live your life according to my opinions or desires. Your life is yours to do what you will. And in turn, I'd appreciate the same from you. Sound fair? Good.

Now that I got that off my chest....I think I'll go to bed. It's late and I'm really tired. First, I'd better go out to the studio and tell my husband that it's time to turn off that recording equipment and get to bed. If he wants this marriage to work he'd better start listening to me. Hmmmm......No more of this going to bed late. From now on it's 9:30 lights out! And that music he listens to....
