“People pleasing is a trauma response.” I heard Cathy Heller say today on her podcast, Don't Keep Your Day Job. It felt like a punch in the gut.
I’m giving myself permission to get unstuck this year. I’m sick of feeling lost, knowing I could do something with my skills and not, being afraid of what people will think if I show up as just “good enough.”
I’m pulling myself up, I’m gracefully shouting what I need out to the world, to myself, to my husband, to my children. I’m doing the work, I’m climbing, and I am getting out of here.
This life can be whatever I want, and so...it is.
