The People Pleasing Mum
Do you put other people and their needs before yourself and your needs?
I’m going to take a guess and say it’s a resounding YES!
This is something I’ve always done recovering people pleaser here.
I’ve very recently seen the harm this can cause both to me and the other person.
I’ll be honest my mum role is my most important role and blessing in this lifetime.
I’ve always been there for my girls every whim and need and always took pride in that about me.
Recent events have shown me in a really hard and painful way that putting them before me has caused some damage.
My lesson has been that doing it for them doesn’t set them up for success, it’s sets them up to fail.
So I’ve had to pull myself back and this has been hard and painful for both of us.
It’s my job to teach them how strong, powerful and capable they are. Also that I will always support and guide them, showing them our separate paths that run parallel to each other whilst still connected always.
As I stepped onto the beach today and the air hit my face it was like a renewal, a renewal of my energy and a renewal of my nurturing role to my girls.
I wanted to share my story with you as inspiration if you find yourself putting the needs of others above your own.
