Friendship and Connection

Hi Brooke, as I’m working on changing my beliefs, I keep doing various models on friendship and connection. I’ve told myself that I’m not myself around others and then I get caught up in my own thoughts. I want to have a better connection with my friends, my family, my boyfriend’s family, and just others in general. I want to be able to trust what I say and show up authentically and with love. I put too much pressure on myself to say the right thing and be perfect. Can an alternative thought be – I’m learning to love the me who shows up around others imperfectly? Or I’m becoming more aware of myself and how I act around others? Thank you!!
