You have always relied on what you can do..
...you know, you're the STRONG one….
You’ve done all the things… go to school, get the job, establish your career, be at the top of your game, show up for friends and family in their times of need, you’re responsible for taking care of everyone else and this leaves little time for you. After all, the last thing you want is to be considered selfish. Right?
You’re constantly ON…working, volunteering, and the list goes on and on. You continue to push yourself to DO, because doing has always been the way that you have received validation, acceptance,…love, maybe? You continue to do so, that others can’t see that really you are scared and you doubt yourself. You can’t risk being discovered or showing people who you really are.
Who you really are…..you find yourself questioning if you even know who you really are?
You find that you are often second guessing yourself or the motives of others. You are anxious about how you are perceived by others and often sacrifice your own desires to please others. Leaving you with feelings of resentment, shame, and guilt.
You used to take pride in being the one that everyone sought out for help. But, lately you are starting to realize that few people show up for OR even believe you when you take the risk to express your needs. And, you are slowly tiring of being everything to everyone. You just don’t know how to get out of this cycle you find yourself in and doubt that it is even a possibility.
But, you know something has to change…
I can help…
Change can be difficult, as we have learned to navigate the world in ways that have served to make us feel safe and secure. However, as we continue to grow and experience life, many of the ways we have learned to cope often don’t work as well anymore and instead create additional strife in our lives.
