The ideal of self-management is increasingly contested. Although meant to empower people to take responsibility for their own life and wellbeing, it has typically become an instrument that reduces professional support to three questions:’ What can you do yourself?’, ‘How can your social network help you?’, and ‘What do you need from us as professionals?’ What is overlooked, is that life can be overwhelming for people in vulnerable positions. Then, gaining control over life is often the unspoken request for help. For this, we present a broader, socio-spatial framework that understands people’s lives in everyday places where they like to be, used to be, and wish to go. Experiences of people who try to take up their lives again after brain injury, serve as an example.
