Stop people pleasing and live the life you want.
I help adult men and women who struggle with people pleasing and anxiety gain tools to assert themselves in order to live their life without shame and guilt.
My clients struggle like you do. Despite handling their lives with a smile plastered to their face, they feel like they are in a constant juggling-act, checking items off the “list” for everyone else, and appearing on the outside like they have everything under control. However, on the inside they are struggling to keep it all together.
When they first come in, they feel so overwhelmed they have a difficult time knowing where to start. They feel frazzled, rushed, hopeless and like they aren’t good enough.
They find themselves doing everything for others, and they are the last person they think about, if at all. They tend to do things because they feel they “should” or “ought to” in order to “make other people happy” with little thought given to what they want. They feel stuck and often times they do not even recognize their life. They worry about past actions or statements and get stuck in “what if” or “worst case” scenarios.
Constantly giving to others gets in the way of the life they want. They aren’t the kind of person they want to be and are not living the life they desire.
Before they came to see me, they knew they wanted to make changes but felt too overwhelmed. They worried that saying “no” was similar to swearing and felt guilty when they even considered it. They were pretty certain that if they were not “perfect” in all they did, they were failing at life.
Like my clients, you deserve to live without fear or worry ruling your life. You can say no and still be a good person. Feeling connected, calm, and fulfilled without a crammed schedule is possible. Finding balance in your life is not out of your reach. If you want to say no without feeling bad, stop living with fear, or no longer feel like you aren’t enough, I would love to help you get there.
Call now. Everyday does not have to be a struggle. I can help.
