Online: Control freak?

How to let it go!

A control freak's perfectionism has a downside. It can stand in the way of your enjoyment because you always want to plan everything. It might be so bad that you even start to panic if something unexpected happens. Learn to let go by changing your thoughts and behavior. You'll discover how good it can feel when you no longer need to have control over everything, but can focus on the really important things. Give others the responsibility they can handle. If you do, you'll make things easier for yourself and others. The RET (Rational Effectiveness Training) method will guide you along the way.
