Controlling can be Miserable

We all have a natural desire to be in charge. Going too far, on the other hand, can lead to dissatisfaction. Controlling others makes us feel good because it gives us the impression that we are not under someone else's control. In relationships, you can have either control over others or their love—but not both. Being a control freak isn't conducive to happiness. David McClelland, a well-known motivational psychologist, refers to "power stress" as the tendency to become angry and frustrated when others do not behave the way you want them to. This implies that when you try to exert control over others, you set yourself up for resentment, frustration, and disappointment when they don't behave the way you want them to. But being in control is worsen. Consider yourself a slave. Being controlled is unpleasant, which is why we tend to rebel. Moreover, taking control of our own life is important. Most of us live such hectic, fast-paced lives that we are constantly pressed for time. According to the findings, the fear of running out of time is a major source of unhappiness. Surprisingly, the more successful we become in life, the more time we feel pressed for. We can't control how other people feel or make decisions, but we can take charge of our own. It might feel good but taking it too far can make u miserable.
