Blog Post: The Rules of Nature
I’m a control freak. I really am. I’m aware of it and I’m working on it, but I start to have little anxiety attacks when I feel out of control of a situation or - even more so - my environment.
However, here’s the truth: everyone wants to be in control. I’m not sure I would title every person as a “control freak,” but everyone wants to think they have control of situations that they really don’t. So, we apply rules to everything. Every type of relationships is riddled with titles, rules and boundaries. And if you’re one of those people that is “so laid back” and “doesn’t care for titles,” you’re putting your own boundaries on it to try to keep control and I don’t even want to hear it.
Why can’t people just… connect?! However they want to, on their own terms. Who cares?
