Impossible to Love and Control at Same Time
Terry Crews, actor, author, and former NFL player, recently appeared on The Daily Show and spoke about #MeToo, toxic masculinity and domestic abuse. In the short video clip included here, he describes how he used to believe in the male stereotype of being in control, but that he came to realize that the important people in his life were distancing themselves from him. Now he realizes that love is the answer and that –
“it is impossible to love someone and control them at the same time.”
Click on the video link below and be touched and inspired and reminded – reminded that hope is still all around us.
It seems that wherever and whenever good things are happening the principles of Choice Theory are close at hand. Terry said so much when he stated –
“You telling other people what to do does not make you the boss;
you doing what you told yourself to do makes you the boss.”
Schedule update – I have decided to cancel The Better Plan classes for this summer (2018) at Pacific Union College. Stay tuned next summer.
