26 May Combatting Approval Addiction: Needing To Be Liked At All Costs [TJJS:EP301]
Combatting the Need for Approval
Ever find yourself obsessing about what others may be thinking? Or re-run conversations in your head, second-guessing everything you said? Have a difficult time saying ‘No’ because… um, what if they don’t like me!? Ever feel like if someone is disappointed in you, you are damn-near destroyed and ruined? Or do you ever experience extreme guilt when you take time for yourself or set up a boundary?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those Qs, it’s likely that you are struggling with some serious approval addiction… essentially, the need to be liked… At. All. Costs. And those “costs” are usually your time, energy, self-worth, and desires. And, let me tell you, you are most certainly not alone.
In this week’s show I look at the common ways approval addiction shows up in your life and a specific 5-step process you can take to start ushering in some #legit SELF-approval… Instead of always worrying about what everyone else is thinking about you. #exhausting
This pod explores:
- How to acknowledge that a situation in your life sucks, but YOU don’t suck… and really believe it.
- How to allow yourself to feel awesome when you receive approval without allowing it to dictate your self-worth
- How to know what is and what is not your responsibility when wanting to make everyone happy
