Becky and Diana delve into the concept of control and why we try so hard to stay in control. 

  • It’s all about trust. Trusting others, yes, but mostly it’s about trusting ourselves.
  • There is a false sense of safety and security when we think we’re in control.
  • People want certainty.
  • Boundaries teach people how to treat you.
  • No matter how hard you try you can’t change other people.
  • Control actually limits your possibilities.
  • When you exert control over others, you don’t give them a chance to express who they are and learn from the mistakes they might make.
  • If there is a controlling person in your life, remember it is their problem. You are only responsible for your responses.
  • Always needing to be in control can be very lonely.
  • Positive reinforcement can help combat controlling people because it gives them the validation they need.
