The more that I take ownership of meeting my own needs, the less “needy” I am for external validation or for someone else to swoop in and save me from myself.
In today’s episode, career change coach Lisa Lewis turns the tables by interviewing me about my relationship with my needs, reclaiming the concept of what it means to be “needy,” and the personal power generated when we take responsibility for caring for ourselves as if we are deserving of our care.
Tune in to hear us explore…
- Prioritizing the things that make you feel good
- Loving yourself… even when you may not particularly like yourself
- What building a relationship with yourself truly looks like
- Finding the grey zone between giving yourself a free pass and holding yourself to your commitments to your self with gentle discipline
