Are you a giver, healer, or fixer who feels depleted, empty, unworthy, lonely, and unsatisfied on the inside? Do you find yourself constantly giving to others and are now ready to focus on your own mental health?
You may struggle with tuning into your own wants and needs, prioritizing self-care, expressing your emotions, and asserting yourself. You may feel a gnawing sense of emptiness that cannot be filled by work, friends, family, or food; nor can you escape it through instant gratifications or mindless distractions. You may have a hard time depending on others and asking for help even when you are at your limit. You may struggle with lack of self-discipline and/or overworking yourself to the point of exhaustion. You may have a wealth of compassion, love, faith, support, and kindness for others and yet do not have a positive relationship with yourself. Instead, you may be angry, blaming, and critical of yourself for not living up to your full potential. You might wonder if there is some magical ingredient for happiness and connection that others have that you do not. You might say to yourself, “If people really know who I am, they won’t like me, and they will leave.”
You are not alone. You are not broken. This pattern of being is learned and can be unlearned.
You are exhausted and ready for change.
