Growing up in an unpredictable or unsafe environment forces you into a space where you feel the need to control everything and everyone. Such was the case with Annalise Keating.
In yesterday’s episode, Shirl and Natty discussed Annalise’s cape and mask as the master manipulator and master performer. In today’s episode they chat it up about how her manipulative behavior gave birth to the need to control the outcome of not only life’s circumstances, but the need to control those around her as well.
But in order for them to take a look at her need to control ALL THE THINGS, they also need to take a look at her lived experiences that forced her into that space.

Our Facebook community is a safe space where you can connect with other Black women and have open and honest discussions about things that concern us individually and collectively.
