Historically, I've let them act controlling and make me miserable. Now I try to stand up to them and they make me miserable.
4 yrs later and this comment is still relevant.
I make sure I stay in control of me!
Tell them to shove off. Oh, sorry.<br />
Tell them to shove off.
Act like you have control and be sneaky. Exmaple: Get a job but get drunk when you get home. See what I mean?
Tell them that their lives don't look that good from your view point either let them start with theirs before they get to yours.
Use their mindtricks/games against them. works real good with christians who "think" that they are god. btw dont take personally But im sure you know what/who i mean
You don't let there antics get to you, Because if you do our only letting them win a game you didn't ask to play. think of life as a game, you are always going to run into or be around or meet, people who think the rule the world... just walk away ... life is what you make it..
I don't always feel comfortable with controlling them, but some just seem to need that ; )
I don't spend time with them.
well, best thing I ever did was tell my abusive therapist where to stick her crappy advise... she was a control freak and bully. joyce no doubt will find some other innocent female to abuse, and break down into a nervous breakdown wreck...
