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.
