Ever feel like you’re gripping the steering wheel of life just a liiiiiiitle too tightly? Have others described you as high strung, type A, or overcontrolled? You know, like a perfectionist? Are we the only ones with our hands raised here?? 🙋🙋
In today’s episode, we explore the symbiotic relationship between perfectionism and control -- what drives our desire for control, what we’re trying to avoid, and what we can do when our pursuit of control becomes a hindrance in our lives. We also examine ways to release control, learn to let go, and soften into acceptance. If less running on the hamster wheel and more embracing of simplicity + peace sound good to you, press play now.
