Has your history of people pleasing behavior resulted in you feeling your relationships with others aren’t reciprocal? Do you struggle to take up space in conversations or in a room due to lack of confidence? Are you struggling with loneliness and lack of progress in dating and/or asserting your needs in relationships? Or about feelings of inadequacy due to struggles in managing high expectations placed upon you?
Whether, you have a small circle of friends/no friends, or dealing with transitional changes in life, depression, loneliness, or even really crappy Tinder dates. You deserve to invest in your self-care and carve out time to increase your insight and solely focus on you and your current needs at that moment. If any of this speaks to you I encourage you to take the leap, even if you’re scared we can do this together!
