Do you play it small or dim your inner light because you worry about what other people will say or think about you?
Does the idea of stepping into your power fully overwhelm you?
Are you overly concerned with getting people’s approval of You and what you desire to do with your life?
If the above resonates with you and you answered YES to the above questions, than you are in the space of “PEOPLE PLEASING”.
This is not a judgement, it’s creating the awareness within you to look at what’s going on for you.
In my own life, I am a recovering ‘People Pleaser’, it ran deeply in my life from past life experiences and childhood traumas. As a result, I would say or do things that others wanted me to do because I was so afraid of disappointing them or worried about what they would think of me, if I didn’t agree with what they were saying or doing. At the beginning this was pretty harmless, maybe I would YES, when I mean NO or say NO when I mean YES. But over time, I began to notice it’s detrimental effects on my overall health and wellbeing.
I began to feel emotionally exhausted, physically tired, mentally drained and lacking Spiritual connection to Source and my guides. I was constantly second- guessing myself, not feeling worthy or good enough, unable to speak my truth and I couldn’t even trust my own intuition to help me move forward in my life. It was even really difficult for me to connect to my Soul’s purpose because I was so caught up in what others thought or felt was right for me.
I was at such a low point in my life, feeling so unhappy, hopeless and unfulfilled, seeking answers and ONLY in the space of complete surrender, I heard my inner guidance loud and clear “I can’t LIVE my LIFE according to what other people feel or think is right or good for me. I needed to breakthrough that situation and create awareness around my situation.”
I did this through massive and deep inner work and getting support from those who had been there before me in a space of non-judgement, compassion and love. Through the love and support of others, my guides and the love for myself, I continued to breakthrough the limits I had placed on myself to really get to a place where I am comfortable and confident in my own skin.
And now, if something like this comes up for me, I acknowledge it, create awareness around it and shift it to a higher perspective.
Through my own inner healing work and supporting others on their journey, it has become very clear to me, that we can’t IMPACT the world in a POWERFUL and POSITIVE way if we are first not willing to own our stuff and stop relying on others for approval or acceptance. It is through deep acceptance and unconditional love for ourselves that we can fully step into our power and create the changes that you desire to see in your own life and in the world.
Yes I understand, we want to be accepted and loved and others. For that to happen authentically we must first be willing to love and accept ourselves wholeheartedly and completely.
Are you feeling stuck right now, unable to move forward in your life. If so, I invite you right now to reflect on…
1) how are you playing it small or not fully stepping into your power
2) why are you doing that (i.e. what’s the pay off of doing it)
3) what can you do to shift it to a higher perspective
4) who can you turn to for support through this
When you can honestly and authentically answer the above questions, you’ll continue to move forward in a way that is in alignment with your truth and be authentically YOU!
