APPROVAL ADDICTION: YOU DON’T HAVE TO SAY YES TO BE LIKED.

How has life been for the first half of the year. The third quarter is almost over and what experience has enriched you so far.

How are your relationships with people?

What are the boundaries you have set for yourself?

Do you sabotage your inner peace to make others happy?

Healthy relationships require and respect boundaries.

You don’t have to say yes to be liked.

Be honest, speak and love your truth. Many people will not like you and they don’t have to.

When i was younger, NO was a complete sentence. I didn’t need to explain my reason. As I got older, i began to loosen that boundary and gave sheepish explanations for what i was supposed to have strong convictions and stand behind. Regardless of my explanations or whatever i tried to change to make the other person happy, it didn’t change much and i was not happy.

Choose happy.

Choose you.

Put yourself first, everything else can come after.
