It is not easy to deal with or cope with a controlling person. And it is, especially, not easy to cope with it being someone that you care about. Nevertheless, a person should not be completely blinded by love. No one deserves or wants to be controlled. If they do, they may have issues that they need to deal with. In life you'll come across quite a few controlling people. However, try hard not to let that stop you from carrying on and just being yourself. Let people see you for who you are on the inside, rather than deciding based on what is shown on the outside. Maybe this article will help others to cope with controlling people. There are a lot of them out there. And although nobody has all the answers on how to deal with them, some people have managed to cope with the ones that they have run across. Understand that 'Controlling person' is a code for 'Codependent person', and coping with people with this prevalent disease can be virtually impossible- 'controlling' today will just most likely morph into some other Codependent behavior tomorrow, i.e. 'manipulative', 'bullying', or other 'aggressive' behaviors, or 'passive' equivalents. Read 'Codependent No More', a seminal work on the subject, or seek other resources, such as a Coda meeting, for more information. .
