Addicted to Control

Addicted to Control

If you are addicted to control you are probably trying to control everything and everyone in your life. You want things to go your way. Throw in the addiction part, and you need things to go your way. Your need to control feels desperate to you. Why? Because when you lose control, you suffer with anxiety. Before we talk about anxiety, let’s paint a better picture of the control addicts in our lives. Control addicts have problems in their relationships. They are the people who throw out the gauntlet of “my way or the highway”, and while we may feel they make our lives miserable for treating us this way, they can’t be feeling so great themselves. They are the “right” fighters, as in, I’m always “right” and you’re always “wrong”. Control addicts can come off as “righteous”. They know what is morally right and virtuous, and if you don’t have the same beliefs as them or act, as they believe you should act, you’re in the wrong. Their thinking is usually very black and white. They don’t feel comfortable operating in the gray zone where there are different ways to solve a problem. In their eyes, the solution is as obvious as if it were black or white, and it’s not up for discussion! Severe anxiety can overwhelm its sufferers with feelings of fear to the point of panic…talk about feeling out-of-control! Have you ever know a control addict who felt miserable for having to live this way? Have you witnessed evidence of their anxiety in other areas of their lives? The truth is, these people are just trying to survive and get by like all the rest of us. This just happens to be their malady. So, even if they make you crazy and piss you off, show

Hit the OFF Switch on the Negative Self-Talk

Hit the OFF Switch on the Negative Self-Talk

My life sucks. I’m a failure. How could I be so stupid? I never seem to do anything right. I’m not going to be able to pull that off. There’s no way I can get all this done. No one ever appreciates what I do anyway. And on the story goes… If this is the story playing out in your head, it’s time to consider hitting the OFF switch on the negative self-talk! If you are someone who clearly recognizes that you are a negative Nelly or Ned, and you are sick of hearing the negative talk that constantly rolls around in your head, then skip the Backstory and read How to Hit the OFF Switch. If you want the Backstory on how these distorted stories set up camp in your brain, see if you identify with any of the most common distortions of thinking: Filtering. No matter what happens, you only seem to dwell on the negative. Even if you got the promotion at work, it’s your fault you didn’t get it months earlier. Personalizing. You always blame yourself. It’s your fault that things don’t always go as planned, or someone in the family is fighting, or people at work are unhappy. Catastrophizing. You anticipate the worst. You spill coffee on yourself first thing in the morning so expect that the whole rest of the day will be a disaster. Polarizing. Everything in your world is either good or bad. Black or white. You’re either perfect or a total failure. How to Hit the OFF Switch: Identify the things you usually think negatively about Choose one of those things to work on Practice thinking positively instead of negatively in that one area Stop yourself during the day to monitor your thoughts Evaluate objectively what you’re thinking If you catch

Husband’s Party Drinking? (part 1)

Husband’s Party Drinking? (part 1)

My husband has gotten himself in to trouble with drinking, and I know he’s been trying to curb the habit, but we recently were at a party with family and friends where he was getting sloppy and loud. It made me want to pack up and go home early. He knows his drinking too much makes me mad, so at the party he was sneaking around with his gang of drinking buddies, and they were hitting it hard, downing shots and chugging everything they could get their hands on. I could see trouble brewing from the corner of my eye, but I never know whether to leave him be or go over to him and try to get him to stop drinking or slow down. I don’t want to be the nagging, controlling wife, but I know he usually regrets his behavior the next day once he’s sober. Should I help him monitor his drinking at parties or not? Your man has a drinking problem. You know it. He knows it. Now is the time to get serious and look at what can be done about it. I’ve said before I have great compassion for people who have trouble with substance abuse. Like any addictive process, whether it is too much shopping, or golf, or working, or video gaming; throw in to the mix a chemical substance and it’s a game changer when it comes to curbing the problem or trying to stop. The first step toward addressing your problem is to ascertain how serious your drinking is. According to the NIAAA, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, here’s the test to determine your risk: Men at risk for a drinking problem drink more than 4 drinks on any single day AND more than 14 drinks total per week.
