This podcast is the narrated version of my article The Dark Side of Your Emotional Needs – Control.

Part three of the series explores the need for control and how it can betray us when it is met in unhealthy ways.

In this episode I talk about:

  • What can you control in your life?
  • Why we all need a sense of control
  • The dark side of our need for control
  • Learned helplessness: learning not to control
  • The need for rebellion
  • When the ‘need’ morphs into a ‘greed’ for control
  • When the need for control is not met in a healthy way
  • Five simple steps to tyranny
  • How a scammer abuses the need for control
