A roll of the eye, an uncomfortable laugh or a deep sigh might be all more subtle flavors of control, yet they are still ways to diminish what someone else says or thinks.
This week, I am taking a look at a topic that might hit a bit close to home for some of us (take a listen to see how close to my home it actually hit) – Ep 137: The Losing Battle of Power & Control in Marriage.
Here’s what you’ll discover:
- What’s behind the battle: Ever wonder why we fight for control and power in our relationships? I’ll uncover the hidden drivers behind this age-old struggle.
- Ways we attempt to control: From subtle tactics to overt actions, I’ll explore the various strategies we employ to assert control, shedding light on behaviors you might not even realize you are engaging in.
- The path to change: It’s not about changing your partner; it’s about transforming yourself. I’ll share practical steps to relinquish control, fostering a more intimate, connected relationship.
Relationships can be tricky, and control and power battles are more common than we think. But guess what? Change is possible, and it starts with self-awareness and self-compassion.
Listen now on the AwakenYou in Your Marriage podcast to discover how to break free from these patterns and nurture a love that’s built on trust, understanding, and authenticity.
Remember, change takes time, and it’s okay to stumble along the way. Be patient with yourself and your partner as you embark on this transformative journey.
