I have issues with control when I am emotionally not feeling very well. When I'm feeling insecure, sad, etc, and it is too subtle for me to notice, I usually notice because my need for control goes up tremendously. It is a good way to see how well I'm doing emotionally
So far the best way to deal with it for me personally has been to give in to my need for control wherever possible (sort term fix) so that I can have the mental peace of mind to work on the other issue, which is the real cause for that need for control.
And once that other issue is "fixed" or dealt with, the need for control just goes away by itself.
