I get it. That was me for years. Always trying to balance everything. I worried about doing the right thing for my family, others and my business, (often sacrificing my own peace of mind). I said, “yes” to almost everything. “Sure, I’ll be there and why don’t I cook dinner for all 93 of your party guests? It’s no problem! The “people pleaser” in me was taught to do for others first. And, God forbid I would take care of my own needs, that would be way too selfish.
This left me physically and mentally exhausted. I was in desperate need of a change. My actions did not align with my true desires. I was responding to cultural and family expectations of what I should do, often causing debilitating physical symptoms. Oh, and my inner critic had a field day when I went against my true nature. No. More. Though. It doesn’t have to be like this.
