Some things in life are mutually exclusive; control and love are two of those things. Love is surrendering to faith in the unknowable and belief in the good that resides within us all. We fool ourselves into thinking that when we have the upper hand we have security. You can control yourself, but try to control another person or a situation and you will find that you have nothing. Love is not the absence of fear, but the knowledge that there is something greater that can be found in trust.
