Control Is an Illusion.

“People ultimately do what they want to do.  They feel how they want to feel (or how they are feeling); they think what they want to think; they do the things they believe they need to do; and they will only change when they are ready to change.  It doesn’t matter if they’re wrong and we’re right.  It doesn’t matter if they’re hurting themselves.  It doesn’t matter that we could help them if they’d only listen to, and cooperate with us.  IT DOESN’T MATTER, DOESN’T MATTER, DOESN’T MATTER.”

— Melody Beattie, Codependent No More, p. 74
