Identifying and dealing with people that have control issues.
Is your significant other a controller?
I found a great article that explains 10 common signs that your boyfriend / girlfriend / whatever is possibly a controlling person. They most likely suffer with a mental disorder such as anxiety. While there is only so many options available to you in dealing with a controlling person, the first thing you need to do is get educated about why they do it. If you find that your significant other is a controller Dr. Phil has an article about ways to deal with this issue. Dan Neuharth, PhD has another great article to help provide you with information about how to deal with these controllers. But no matter what you decide to do it will be the right choice. Don't let them push you around any more. Stand up for yourself and do what is right.
