I stumbled upon this thought today…
It’s not just me; Joni Cope helped me because she has survived something my wife Joanne is currently enduring.
If you rob someone of choice, it creates fear. This would be particularly unnerving for someone that seeks control when possible (NOTE: “control” need not be deemed either good or bad for the purpose of this post).
Addendum (2:15pm): Apparently when a person is traumatized, it is crucial they be put in a position; and, (better yet, enabled, allowed) find a way, to make decisions where they have a sense of control.
Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
