That's what happens when we try to control things that are not within our circle of control; rather than actually gaining control, we waste a bunch of energy, effort, emotions, and time trying to force other things and situations to be the way we want them to be. That in turn creates friction in our relationships and leaves at least some of the individuals involved feeling invalidated, unimportant, and unworthy of being kept informed or in the loop.
As counter-intuitive it seems, the best way to gain control is to let go of the need for control. Which is hilarious, because when things get challenging, all we tend to want is control, and we end up feeling a desperate need for it, this aching in the chest like we can't do this on our own and if everyone would just cooperate everything would be fine.
