How to use "Impose upon" in context?

When we impose our will upon others, whether through coercion or coercion through fear, we are taking control. This control can be empowering and allow us to do what we think is best for the other person, but it can also be oppressive and limiting. Imposing our will can be enjoyable, but it's important to be aware of the underlying motives and to always be in compliance with the social norms we've imposed.
