Have you ever been so angry with someone that they dominate your thoughts? You argue with them in your head. You think negative thoughts about them and you feel stressed about the very image of that person. Have you experienced this? My guess is that most of us are experiencing it now.

I’m a recovering control freak. I used to control everything. I damaged or ruined relationships, because of my attitude. I recently viewed some family home videos with my wife, Alia. I was embarrassed by how I controlled the environment around me.
I do most of my writing on a plane, at 30,000 feet, flying across the U.S. It’s the only time I can get 2-3 hours of uninterrupted, quiet time.
