Are you a bit of a control freak? By that, I mean do you try to control everything in your love life (and beyond)? I’m incredibly passionate about letting go of the need to control everything. I consider it a vital part of healing and being on this love journey.

In this episode, I define what it means to truly surrender, the benefits you derive from it, why people try to control things, what controlling behavior can look like in your love life, and how to overcome it. Along the way, you’ll hear about what I’ve noticed in my own life as well as those of my clients.

5:00 – What it really means to let go of control

9:15 – Why the path of letting go is more important than the outcome

11:42 – Examples of how you might try to inadvertently control things in the dating space

18:17 – Something to reassure you if you see yourself as overly controlling in your life

20:51 – Examples illustrating where the need to control things comes from

24:15 – How to figure out where your need to control comes from

25:29 – Ways you can overcome control issues and learn to let go

32:23 – A caveat for the common reaction of “it’s happening for a reason” and other mantras

38:45 – Why letting go of control is really about getting out of your own way
