Create space

Give them distance 

Narcissists can't control what they cannot interact with. You're better off staying away and keeping your sanity

You can't control a control freak! I have had them in my life in the past. They are very hard to maintain relationships with and very draining. Most control freaks are narcissists but some do come from a place of trauma. Most times, you can't tell the difference. In my experience, it is best to only keep them as passive friends or acquaintances, or just cut them from your life completely if they are bad enough. I once called off plans with a control freak friend I had, she told me I would die alone and was very nasty to me.

Since i started following the teachings of stoicism, i have learned not to bother about things that are beyond my control. For this case, it is hard to get hold of a control freak. Because you will end up wasting your time and energy and even hurt your feeling in the process. So i usually just keep off such people. They are just full of negative energy!
