Always Seeking Approval

Do you find that you often say “yes” to things that you’ll regret or resent later, but you do it because you don’t want to disappoint someone? Do you find you hesitate to buy certain things, wear certain outfits, or do something that you want because you don’t know if it’s the “right” choice?

A Kind Act a Day

We’ve talked a lot about self-care so we can show up and be mindfully present in the world.
