What do you do when somebody does something that drives you crazy or doesn't do something you really think they should? Do you struggle with wanting to control other people? If you do you're not alone! The teachings of the New Church say "The most difficult battle of all...is with the love of ruling from a love of self. One who overcomes this love, easily overcomes all other evil loves, because it is their head." (Divine Providence #146) Hear how we can fight this difficult battle.
