479 | Can Someone Be Both Submissive And Controlling?

Someone appears to be calm and agreeable, and yet they’re trying to control you or the situation at the same time. In fact, if we’re honest, we’ve even been that person! Submissive And Controlling at the same time, is it possible?

We’ve probably all felt that tension in a relationship at least once, right? 

Well, we’ve had this question pop up from time to time, so we wanted to tackle it head-on: can someone be both submissive and controlling simultaneously? Yes, absolutely.

There’s some frustration, agitation, and maybe even a little manipulation. I mean, people are people, we’re all human, and at times we can get a little controlling and self-centered. 

Healthy roles with accountability are life-giving and will help us avoid getting stuck relationally!

So, we want to be able to recognize this activity, identifying it even in ourselves, so that we can respond to it maturely, with humility and respect, safeguarding ourselves and the relationship. 

If we’re successful here in bringing balance and proper alignment to our relationships, we’ll enjoy fewer breakdowns, more harmony, and even more happiness with others. 

I hope you enjoy this episode!
