Why You Shouldn't Let Family Pressure Control Who You Love

When it comes to love, it’s absolutely crucial that you are in control of your life’s decisions and are keeping your own best interest in mind. Too often we let external forces dictate our love lives and we never stop to ask ourselves, “What is it that I actually want?” On this episode of Relationship Theory, Lisa and Tom Bilyeu sit down to discuss such matters and more as they explore what to do if your parents, friends, or family are pressuring your decisions related to love and why you should feel empowered to not shy away from what it is you actually want. They discuss why you should disregard societal pressures, why you need to take control of your own life’s decisions, how to follow your own internal compass, and the importance of knowing what it is that you truly want.
