Let’s Get Real About Cheating

Letting Go of Approval and Control

2/11/2020
Letting go of approval and relinquishing control are things that I’ve struggled with for many years, and continue to work on. My counselor Eleanor recently said to me, “You obsessively seek approval. Stop doing that. And, when you don’t get the approval you want, you go into control. Neither of these things serve you or work very well.” She’s right. Seeking approval and/or trying to control everything can get in our way in life, both personally and professionally, and can stop us from...
