Control Freak


Have you met one of these?  Or are you one of these?
The Control Freak

Everything has to be done your way.
Everyone has to act the way you want them to act.
Everyone needs to follow your rules, even though sometimes they do not apply to you.
You manipulate with faces, feeling, outbursts, inattention even harsh words - you bully.
You want what you want and there is no changing your mind because you are right and there is no room for other opinions or ideas.

OK.

This is not you...but it is someone you work with/for or with whom you have a relationship.
Tough nut to crack.

What do you do?  Let them know, in no uncertain terms, that you will not change your beliefs simply because they want you to.  You will not put their bullying tactics, but continue to work (or live your life) in accordance with what works for you.  If that requires less time or interaction with them, then that is how it will be.
