You spend all of your time and energy taking care of your family leaving little for yourself. You tell yourself “I can’t do this”, “What was I thinking?” or “I’m selfish”. You find yourself too accommodating of others, a people-pleaser. You’re afraid if you put your foot down, that people won’t like you. I became a therapist because I like helping people thrive. Thriving isn’t about being perfect, or always getting it right. It’s about being more in touch with yourself, realizing what you need, and going after it.Thriving isn’t about being happy all the time, but figuring out what you need right now in your life in order to move forward.
