Cancel Control Freaks

There are no such things as control freaks. They are simply the adult version of children whose autonomy has been wrested from them.

  1. Wow, that one was straight to the bone of me. It hurts, but not because I fall painfully into that category, because somehow the only person who can see it, understand it, and state it is miles away and cannot make my loved ones understand. But I’m grateful you’re you, and I’m grateful you’ve unintentionally validated me in such a fundamental way.
