The Mysterious Triad:
Helplessness, Unrealistic Guilt, & Overly-Controlling Behaviors
We commonly numb feelings of helplessness, especally feelings of helplessness when under pressure including during traumatic situations.
Not able to exert our influence on people, situations and circumstances may create fear, disappointment, anger and frustration.
We think we should have:
- seen something that was not forseeable
- known then what we know now
- paid attention to something that we had no way of knowing the signifcance at that time
Challenging and traumatic situations often cause people to become overly-controlling in their behaviours.
