How To Stop Controlling Your Partner And Save Your Relationship

LoveShackLive_600x315Tune into Love Shack Live with your hosts Staci and Tom Bartley on Thursday, February 4th at 1 p.m. as they navigate the sometimes hazardous waters of relationships.

“Most of the time when we’re trying to save our relationships, we tend to focus on all the things we think our partner needs to do differently. But, what we don’t realize at the time, is that attempting to control your partner is ALWAYS going to lead to more fights, more pain, and more problems, ” said Staci.

So what are we supposed to do?

“First, we have to accept that pain is part of every relationship no matter how healthy it is. We need to stop constantly running from pain, or fixing every issue before it becomes painful, because it’s always going to be a part of us. Next, we must turn and face the pain and focus on our own behavior instead of trying to control our partners. Because trying to change our significant others is, quite frankly, a fruitless mission,” she said.

Join Staci and Tom for the Love Shack where will share exactly what you need to do to stop controlling your partner and repair your connection.
