Power Over A Person?
February 27, 2012 12:52am CST
How can a person have this power over another person that whatever decision he/she has for the other person, no matter how hard for it to the other one, it's like he/she has no other choice but to follow??? I am being curious about this kind of issue. It just makes me really irritated, because this certain person is so close to me. I'd like to be enlightened on this. What do you think about this mylotters?

I guess that depends on how the person doing the clinging feels about their behaviour. If they, and the person they lean on for support don't mind it, then I guess it's not hurting anyone else so how can it be a problem? On the other hand, I can't believe it can be a comfortable situation to be in and that someone who clings to that extend must dislike themselves on some level. Then, it's a problem.

Oh my! I hope that this is not the case of my friend. Actually, that person who dominates his life has given him help and I understand that he's just being respectful by being obedient. The problem is, he doesn't like the way how he's being asked to do what he wants him to do. He's being way too bossy and that he even gives him the freedom of having his free time. There were times too that my friend just freaked out in anger because he was asked to drive him while he was having a good time with friends. What do you think this particular situation is?

I tend to believe that there are some people in this world that are very insecure with themselves and for that reason they become people that are easy to control. There was a time in my life where I was one of those people that would have been viewed as a person that was easy to control because my boyfriend at the time made me feel like I was nothing without him. However, as soon as that relationship ended, I realized that I was a stronger person than I ever thought to be possible.

One person has supreme power over another? He must be some kind of dictator, that another person has no other choice of his/her own. I would respect democracy, and free will. A person has his own free will, to choose to do it right or wrong. So, maybe your friend living under some kind of dictatorship environment, that he has no other choice of anything at all. I feel for him.
