Season 2/Episode 17: Signs That You’re a Puppet Master
In All Seriousness
It’s All About Control
In this week’s episode, Jill and Tony discussed their definition of “puppet master” and debated who that is in their relationship.
Tony said Jill is a puppet master, but he claimed that the term can be a positive one.
Tony told listeners that if they’re with a positive puppet master–if there is such a thing–then they should resist fighting it and embrace that the other person has their best interests at heart.
Jill said if you’re ever accused of being a puppet master, then you should reflect on why they find you controlling. Fix it, if that’s truly the case.
Both Jill and Tony have more advice:
- Realize that the only person you can truly control is yourself
- Determine the real reason why your partner or loved one is telling you what to do
- If you’re the one who consistently tells your partner what to do, reflect on your real reasons behind your actions
