“How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you” rupi kaur

You have a positive view of those around you. You’re kind to your friends, family, coworkers, and the world. You work so hard so that everybody has great things to say about you. You’re a people-pleaser after all! But, you’re not kind to yourself.  You try to be your biggest supported and end up being your biggest critic instead. Although you’re a good person, all the self-doubt and second guessing takes over sometimes. You don’t trust your decision making and deep down you don’t trust yourself. You don’t trust you won’t disappoint people and you don’t trust you’re good enough—. You worry that people will think negatively of you and focus on all the things you are already insecure about. It is hard to accept you don’t like yourself and it is hard to identify your self-worth.

You may feel:

  • It’s hard to trust you’re enough

  • You’re comparing yourself to the people around you, your friends, family, and even strangers. 

  • Worried you’re letting someone down, or upsetting people around you by just being yourself. 

  • That relationships are hard to maintain, that you need to keep people around you happy. 

In therapy, we’ll work on reframing those repeating and intrusive thoughts. We’ll explore your core beliefs, unlearn the beliefs and behaviors that don’t serve anymore, and learn new ways to move forward and trust yourself. You’ll learn to love the person you are today, recognize that you’ve always been worthy of love, and come to terms with your past experiences and self.
