How to Deal With a Control Freak
Do you know someone who has to dictate and tell everyone how to do things all the time? How can you deal with them and not let them drive you crazy? Here are some steps that really work.
Understand that control freaks are people who are terrified of failure. They can not trust that anyone will do a better job than they will.
It is a personality disorder stemming from childhood that can cause misery in the work place and at home. Most "control freaks" are unhappy and insecure people who don't understand how their words and actions can affect people.
Behave consistently calm and patient with them. Getting angry just doesn't work. If it is a personal relationship and it has become abusive-get out and leave. Tell them you need a break from them for now and move on in your life.
They will not get better until they seek long term therapy. If it is someone in your family just try to stay out of their way. Sometimes it may seem there is just no pleasing the control freak.
They will criticize you on everything and it is very hard not to take it personally. It can make you furious and hurt your feelings.The WORST thing you can do is fight with them because it just wastes your time.
They will not and can not change without help. This is their deep seated problem not yours. If you're a teen- try to be agreeable and keep very busy all the time.
You can stay away and get out of the house by doing sports or getting really good grades. Tell them you would love to hang out or talk but you are busy with studying, playing, etc.
Make up good excuses. Then go out and find really nice people who make you feel good about yourself. Try to have high but realistic goals and achieve them just for YOURSELF.
This will also make you happy and content with yourself.3Monitor their anxiety levels. A control freak has no coping skills when they are stressed and that is when they run over people. They believe that no one can do as good of a job at something as they will.
They will get bogged down because they have taken too much on for themselves and then strike out. Try to be alert to the mood change and be on your toes.4Running a business with a "control freak" is pure misery as they will reject most or all of your ideas.
Don't take it personal-it is not that your ideas are bad but that they did not think of them. Be supportive and positive but understand your voice will not be heard.
Stop suggesting new ideas in the workplace if you are an employee. Just keep agreeing with them to keep the peace and try to keep them from getting worried about your end.
You may need to reassure them constantly that they are the "boss" and you value your job. If possible start looking for a new job.6Realize that your life is important.
There are always other jobs and other people to have healthy relationships with. If the situation is intolerable, don't torture yourself and find a way out.
No one should be given have the power to "control" your life. It is your life. Don't forget it. For teens, you have to wait until you are at least 18 years old before you can work and be on your own.
Or ask your parents to pay for college if they have the money. Apply to colleges that are out of state.Choose to forgive. Control freaks are riddled with fears and insecurities that leave them never satisfied and happy.
They demand perfection from themselves and we all know that perfection is not easy to achieve if not impossible. You can leave and find happiness for yourself, they may never find peace in their lives.
You do not have to be under control,
remember you have a right to do as you please
