How can I tell when I'm Jesus-dependent?

I have momentary sovereignty-awareness -- seeing Jesus behind everyone and everything, so I'm THANKful for everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is, all according to His genius plan, for my good and His glory.

How can I tell when I'm human-wisdom-dependent? I feel ALONE and in CHARGE of my daily life, so I feel PRESSURE to avoid failure, mistakes, humiliation. Opinionated. Willful. Uptight. Intense.

I know what's best for me, friends, relatives, and everyone else.
