In childhood we developed ways to try to control our lives and prevent discomfort, anxiety, or feeling vulnerable to other people’s criticism, rejection, anger etc. Think of them as childhood hangovers  that become habits as adults. Susan Campbell calls them Control Patterns and describes them as “behaviors that help you feel “right, safe, or comfortable, because you have not yet learned to show up real, unique, and open.”
