Are you a “yes” woman?
Are you a “yes” woman? Do you have trouble saying no? Does it seem like you never have one minute for yourself because you are always doing for others, running kids to this place or another, talking a friend through her latest crisis or baking those cookies at 10:00 p.m. for that school function tomorrow?
If you identify with any of this, you may be a people pleaser. You are so worried about offending others that you take on more than you can possibly handle.
Are you a “yes” woman? Women are natural pleasers and nurturers. We feel like we cannot say no to people and say yes to demands even though we are already depleted.
How to fix people pleasing? Get your feet wet with saying no. Saying something like,”I would really love to help you, let me check my schedule and get back with you.” This gives you time to see if you really want to say yes or are just saying yes because you feel you have to. Counseling can help you learn how to say no when you need to and helps you learn to set boundaries in your relationships.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.
A warrior woman is powerful inside and out. She almost never doubts that fact. She knows that when the force of her will is aligned with her spiritual creative power she can say to the mountain, “move” and it will move. She is comforted knowing she is supported in her mission by guides from above and can synergize her creative power with others to multiply her strength. She is confident that she can draw on her power anytime she needs to because it is intrinsic to her nature.
