Last night I posted this photo of the word “control.” There are a whole list of thoughts going thru my head about this word.
First, let’s look at the definition,
: to direct the behavior of (a person or animal) : to cause (a person or animal) to do what you want
: to have power over (something)
“The power to influence or direct people’s behavior or the course of events…”
the ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior, especially in difficult situations.
