Do you have someone in your life that makes you feel exhausted, angry, unsupported, ashamed or bad about yourself? Despite this, are you trying everything you can to make the relationship work? Are you in a job you hate, but you’ve picked this for a career? Are you so afraid of failing that you’re not living? Is your need to control everything robbing you of your peace of mind? Are you so focused on making other people happy that you forgot that you deserve happiness too?
Sometimes we want things very, very badly. So badly that we lose sight of the cost. Has your short term sacrificing turned into long term unhappiness? The toll it takes on your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well-being can be great.
I encourage you to ask yourself, “What do I deserve?”
Most of us don’t think about what we deserve. Especially in regard to the bigger picture of how we live, how we behave, what we accept and how we treat ourselves. But when you start to really look at what you truly deserve, you’ll find that your answers are directly related to the standards you set for yourself. In addition, what you think you deserve is clearly linked to what you accept in your life and how you live it.
Do you know your worth? Do you know your value to your friends and family? Do you know your value to your employer? Do you know your worth to your spouse or partner? And most of all, do you know your worth to yourself?
We do have the power to let go of things we don’t want or need. Whether out of habit or because of pressure from family or friends, we often cling to poisonous thoughts, feelings and individuals. Therapy helps align your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, as well as how you treat yourself, with what you deserve. Learning how to set and enforce boundaries is necessary in maintain your happiness.
Let me help you focus on what you want and what you deserve. Having both is possible and the key to contentment.
