As children, many of us learned that self-abandonment was the way to gain approval and love, and that we were responsible for regulating other people’s emotions, trapping us in a cycle of unhealthy people-pleasing and codependency. While it’s easy to hide our true selves (our thoughts, opinions, and feelings) to appease others, it is ultimately NOT worth the loss self-respect that occurs along the way.
I hope this video gives you the courage to set boundaries, be yourself, express your truth and stop self-abandoning—even if it’s hard.
