Do you take care of everyone?
Do you put the needs of others before your own?
Are you a people pleaser?
Are you a perfectionist?
Do you feel stuck and unsure if change is possible?
Do you feel like you love too much?
Do you have difficulty taking care of yourself?
If these questions resonate with you, it may be time to talk to someone about what is going on in your life. Women frequently have many roles: mother, wife, sister, daughter, and employee, and it can be stressful to juggle the responsibilities that come with these roles. By taking care of everyone else, you neglect to take care of yourself. People who identify as caretakers, people pleasers, codependents (people who love too much), and perfectionists have a difficult time finding focus for their life and compassion for themselves. Often there is an imbalance between work and family life. If you always put your needs and wants last, it may be time to get help.
The good news is these issues can be treated, and our therapists have the background and experience to help. If you want to feel more in control over your life, have less stress and anxiety, happier relationships, and limit your people pleasing behaviors, therapy can help. Starting therapy may be the first step toward enacting the change you are looking for in your life.
Making the decision to enter therapy can be life changing, and may be one of the most important steps you take. It is time to make your life better.
