It matters that you matter
by Sarah on December 19, 2017
Do you deeply know that who you are, and what you need, think and feel, truly matters?
Chronically focusing on others, tasks and expectations makes it hard to even know what we think, desire or need. Feeling overly responsible for everything can cause us to shut down how we feel: “It doesn’t matter. I just have to keep pushing forward.” Sound familiar?
When I ask clients to tune in to what they think, desire or need it can feel like a big, fat question mark. “I don’t know,” they often say.
It’s painful, and maybe even scary, to not know. So, we do what we do know…stay focused on keeping the laundry clean, the bills paid and the surface tasks of the day in motion (or at least our bat swinging at them as they fly at us).
We’re not acquainted with this deep knowing because we’re not accustomed to it being important. We struggle to believe it is valuable.
You may be thinking… “But, I don’t want to become selfish or self-absorbed.” I hear ya. Swinging to the other side of the spectrum isn’t the answer, either. What I’m talking about is the freedom to include yourself in the consideration of needs, wants and hopes.
The irony is when we deeply embrace “I matter,” and experience our deep worth and unique identity, it will benefit others in the most profound and significant way. It’s how we change our world.
It matters that you matter, too.
If this resonates with you, and you’re ready to develop a solid sense of who you are, how you feel and what you desire, I’d love to speak with you. On the call, I’ll help you get total clarity about what’s fueling these patterns that are holding you back and the action steps you need to take to change them.
