In any controlling relationship, there are two contributors, whether you realize it or not – the controller and the receiver.
Most of us wouldn’t admit to being controlling, but almost everyone has controlling tendencies. Think about it – we all want to feel safe. And in order to diminish our fear, we often resort to controlling our partner.
But do you truly want to control your spouse, or would you rather be involved in an equal partnership?
In this episode, I will dive into why we end up being controlling in our marriages, exploring both sides of the control experience. Understanding the emotions motivating your control or your inability to speak up will revolutionize your understanding of your relationship.
I will explain how you can begin to foster trust and partnership with your spouse instead of leaning on control’s crutch.
