Control Freaks

    Due to my dad's occupation, I had the experience to live in various N.E. States and that meant attending different congregations. Traveling become a way of life for me since childhood even though I spent my early years in Beantown.

    Aside from failing to show love for one another, a dominant quality that I have observed among the witnesses is this talent/ability to CONTROL others. Mind you, this IS applicable everywhere.

    To control others 'succesfully' one only needs to be a cunning manipulator. My mom was a hard taskmaster. My experience with her made it easy for me to pick out people who control/manipulate others. Since my early-teens, no one, but no one, has ever abused me again! The witnesses are control freaks and they don't know it, why? They need to see the man behind the curtain in the 'Wizard of Oz'. Thank's Gary for showing the picture.

    On the other hand........

    No one will treat you like a doormat if you are not willing to lie on the ground.

    Control is merely an illusion, and the contollee has to allow it.

    Yeapers, they are certainly out there. But as BG mentioned, I'm not the doormat today and that just tends to piss those control freaks right off.

    They keep knocking on doors in the search for new mats, or the latest 'new light' in mat design - mat envy drives some people to do a lot of door knocking.

    Keep mats inside where they can't see them, and don't let them in to use them.
