So you’ve spent your life taking care of people..
(Whether they asked you to or not)
Getting really good at seeing their needs, and even anticipating them
And it’s hard to turn down the volume on your sensitivity to others’ needs…
Even though that’s required you to turn down the volume on YOUR needs
to the point that it feels icky even to have them.
So not that you’re trying your best
to give yourself permission to have needs
and to pursue getting them met…
It feels foreign
It gets easier the more that you practice it…
And before you know it, you’ll be like:
“Oh yeah, I need that…”
“Oh yeah, I’m telling you if you’re not meeting my needs…”
And it won’t feel so icky to have them and pursue them
Needs AND wants
Because you’re tuned back into your own channel, so to speak!
