Many people feel extremely frustrated and quite stuck in situations where they are being controlled and thus not getting their own way, be that with controlling parents, a controlling husband or a controlling mother.
But are we ready to hear that it always takes two? One who is controlling and another who allows themselves to be controlled. And once over the initial shock, how about allowing ourselves to get a sense of what this statement offers: the opportunity to take self-responsibility and no longer play ball with controlling behaviours.

Tanya Curtis, Senior Behaviour Specialist and founding director of FABIC Behaviour Specialist Centre, explains that controlling people demand that other people change their behaviour. Their message reads: “You need to change your behaviour to change my experience of life.”
