The need for control is a double edged sword. On the one hand, the more we know about the world, the safer we feel. Conversely, the less we know the more uneasy and scared we feel. Thus the need for control is deeply rooted in fear and those exact fears will be different for everyone.

Today I’m going to discuss:

  • Why eating disorders perpetuate a need for control
  • How attempts to exert control often negatively impact our lives
  • Understanding the different facets of control and how these show up in eating disorders
  • What can be gained by letting go of control
  • How to start letting go of control so you can recover and reclaim your life
