Control is a great way to feel safe. If you control all the parameters, you'll always know what is coming. This feels so secure to a codependent!
Buuuut, controlling behavior is actually a detriment even if it DOES make you feel better. Here are 5 signs you're acting controlling as a codependent person.
Remember to use your iceberg thoughts--notice what is above the water line in your obvious thoughts. But then ask yourself why questions to understand deeper thoughts and assumptions about your controlling thoughts, choices and behavior.
We're celebrating today because this podcast is moments away (just 30 downloads) from hitting 20,000 downloads! To celebrate, I'm having you write me old school letters and mailing them in to me. I'm calling it The Connection Project--so fun! I'm going to read them on-air, so if you DON'T want yours read, or DON'T want me to say your first name, please clearly tell me so I can respect your wishes. Thank you!
