Ep 25: "Me...a Control Freak??!!"


Are you kidding me?! Everything has to be done your way! You never listen to me! I'm always wrong and you think you're always right! Even when you're wrong, you're right! If I don't do it, just the way you think I should...I get all kinds of grief!

Well...I'd rather just do it myself, that way I know it's done right! It's just easier for me to do it than have to tell you how! WOW! Have you ever thought, said, or been on the receiving end of those kinds of statements??

Join Dr. Dodd as he walks us through some of the more common signs/symptoms of the "control freak" individual. He shares some of the causes of this condition, what can be done if you're in a relationship with someone like that, and how to begin bringing change in your life...if you believe you are one.

Dr. Dodd, I've always been made to feel that my thoughts, opinions, needs, expectations....they don't matter. Whenever I've tried...I"ve felt ignored, devalued, invisible." Another individual shared, "I've always avoided conflict/confrontation, because I've been afraid of saying something wrong or that would make the other person mad. It just made things worse. Besides, no one wants to hear what I have to say!" In this episode, Dr. Dodd seeks to provide you hope, direction and information, as well as basic skills pertaining to the communication technique of...being ASSERTIVE.
