      1. A few years ago I would not have said this, but more is out of my control than I would like to admit. The reality is that very little is actually in our control.

  1. I try not to use the word control because I used to be a control freak, I prefer to live in the moment now and go with the flow. There is a much higher power pulling the strings and I’ve found it’s pointless to fight against it ❣️

  2. Thats actually a really tough question, because for me, my life is based on a routine, its part of my OCD and part of me. However as someone who is also bipolar, I go manic and that is out of mine and everyone elses hands and we just go along for the ride.

    I suppose ultimately my life is routined. I can tell you in a second how much money I have in the bank account, on the next payday which bit of money is going where. Tell me the day and I can tell you the clubs my son has and what time I need to pick him up.

      1. Some meore are than others. I don’t think any of use are in full control of our lives, things are always going to be thrown into life. But there are certain things you can always prepare for. Illness is something you can’t do and that takes any control out of your hands, but it all depends on what exactly your control in the question means

  3. I have lost control in some ways and gained control in others the last four years. I think I like to be in control but circumstances don’t always allow that. In my younger years I was what you call a control freak, sad to say. Now I pretty much go with the flow.

  4. I feel like it is under control. However I am not in control of external events such as the things that happen in my adult children’s lives or the decisions they make. Things happen with them that affect me but I can only control how I react.

      1. Yes. I took a new position at work which organization plays a big part. I’ve been cleaning, and organizing things there, while my home life is going to pot. I’m on vacation starting today, I’m going to get it together!

  5. I think my life is always more in control than out of control because of my OCD. I relate very much to what itsgoodtobecrazysometimes said.

    For the past 5 years, I’ve been working on relinquishing control because for me it’s not a place of safety (even though it’s often a false sense of safety) like it seems to be for most people. It’s work and it’s draining and it consumed my life for so many years.
    Control is a weird thing for me.
