Time Is Valuable
If something or someone monopolizes you, they demand a lot of your time and attention, so that there is very little time left for anything or anyone else.
Too often, a person can irritate me because they just have too many needs and they don’t consolidate their requests making me spend an inordinate amount of time helping them. know that there is such a thing as people who interrupt others rudely or impatiently. Still, over the years, I have found that the people who complain about others rudely interrupting them (for additional help) they mostly are those who are frequently helping others.
Cast your anxieties on him, for he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
People who try to control others are themselves out of control. These individuals will latch on to that which they know they can control thus making them feel better. It is kind of a fortification for them. That’s why people who squander our time generally obstruct our productivity and annoy us in the process. Whatever is going on for them is never about you. Being a control freak is a compulsion. Recognize that it began for them long before you showed up. Human nature allows us to take things like this personally. Don’t!!! Remember, they are doing this for their own sense of inner control, but doing it via outward expression. In other words they try to do it to everyone.
