You put everyone else first and do everything for everyone else and no one ever seems to appreciate you. You never take the time for yourself to do the things that you want to do, but instead put it off because there is always something more important to do.
You work harder than anyone you know and yet everyone seems to be more successful at this point in their career, you're not climbing the ladder at work. Truly speaking your mind is out of the question because you don’t want to offend people, and you don’t want to inconvenience anyone because you don’t want to be a burden to your family and friends.
You find yourself making excuses for your family members and for yourself. You can’t figure out how to balance your life. You still don’t understand that relationships are a balance with both parties giving and taking equally, and that you don’t need to constantly be giving to others without receiving anything in return and not taking from them. You don’t feel like you're worth it. You don’t feel like you deserve people’s time and space.
I help clients realize the importance of making themselves a priority in their own lives, and that their happiness is a top priority. I help clients to learn how to set boundaries and take care of themselves after years of being the caretaker. You’re not alone. I too am a human and have worked hard to break codependency patterns in my own life, and to set boundaries with loved ones and coworkers and find better work life balance.
I have seen clients who were struggling to put their needs first, and not feel selfish from their family and friends after they made the change to take care of themselves, and they are better for it.
If you are ready to finally stop feeling guilty about making yourself a priority taken advantage of and to realize taking care of yourself is just as important as before helping others, please call or text me for a Free 15 minute consultation at 408-597-4959 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss a plan on how to get yourself back. I’d be happy to see you redefine yourself and feel better for today, tomorrow, and for the rest of your life.
