Are you a Control Girl?
For years, I failed to see that I had any control issues at all. I thought of myself as invested. Concerned. Just trying to help. I only took matters into my own hands because I cared so much! The last word I would have chosen to describe myself was “controlling”. Besides, nobody told me outright that I was controlling–not even my husband. Yet, there were signs….
Anger, anxiety, fear, perfectionism… They were all erupting from a heart that craved control.
Does this sound like you?
If so, don’t despair. I have good news for you AND I have tools to help. Come take the quiz to find out more.
