I’m doing work on the Connections workbook and realized that prior to scholars, I’ve done a lot of people pleasing in my relationships.
I’ve been an introvert my whole life but didn’t realize how much I was trying not to be. I was also saying yes to things when I really wanted to say no.
Now that I’ve been doing so much work with scholars over the years, I’m feeling judgement towards myself for the things I honestly want and don’t want:
I don’t want to go to baby and bridal showers
I don’t want to go to dinner with groups of people
I don’t want to go to a large wedding with unvaccinated people
I feel like I have a blank slate that I can write on when it comes to what I want my connections to look like, but there’s also self-judgment for what I have on my list.
