I am working through some insecurity issues coming up regarding how I present myself to people I work with including clients and colleagues. I have come to realize I have made a habit out of looking for other people’s approval and validation in the work I do. I am always looking to have people tell me that I am doing it good or doing it right. Often times, this action results in me giving up my power when I am dependent on the feedback and comments of others. I am wondering how I can use the model to be able to create a better thought life surrounding my own ability to validate and approve my work and my worth, where it is no longer dependent on me feeding off of other people’s opinions of me and my work. I would like to feel empowered about the way in which I see myself and the work I do, but I have been struggling in believing in my own voice and abilities. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
