Being a woman in this day and age is more complicated than ever. You're receiving so many mixed messages from society, and it can be hard navigating your way through them and understanding who you want to be. But the biggest challenge is often ourselves - we're so focused on pleasing other people or trying to keep up with what's considered "right" that we lose sight of our true desires.
Perhaps, you’re even holding on to expectations you set for yourself a long time ago that no longer feel good to you or make sense for you. For instance, you always saw yourself as a career woman, but now you’re not wanting to make work your only priority. Or, you thought you’d be married by now, but you’ve had other priorities come up along the way that has made finding a partner less significant.
There are so many dating apps and match-making services that it seems like it should be easy to meet someone. However, modern dating presents more difficult challenges than ever. You're having to cycle through dating apps and having false starts or inauthentic connections instead of finding someone who shares values with you. Not to mention the amount of time it takes to do all of this! It can be very hard to find a person who you can and want to start your life with and share all the little moments that make life so incredible.
But sometimes, it's not just about finding someone - you can be dealing with trust issues and fears about settling for someone who isn't right for you. You might be having negative feelings and hopelessness around dating. Which is creating further difficulties in maintaining confidence in the search for a partner. Maybe you're so focused on whether the person you're seeing likes you, that you miss noticing if YOU like them.
Prioritizing your own needs in the relationship is vital for a strong foundation. When we hyper-focus on the other's feelings, opinions, and requirements we end up letting our own needs fall by the wayside. This can lead to people-pleasing behavior, where we don't speak up for ourselves or take care of our own wants and needs.
All of the relationships in our lives can be affected by people-pleasing patterns. Trying to keep everyone happy can become draining and overwhelming, leaving us feeling depleted and misunderstood. Your friends, family, and romantic partners all need to hear your opinions and you need to feel appreciated if a relationship is going to be healthy and mutually beneficial.
You're feeling like you're not taking the chances you want to take in your career. You've played it safe when you could have taken leaps and maybe skyrocketed further than you have. You want to be seen as an authority in the room, with a clear path of career growth and a sense of empowerment. Right now, it's uncomfortable to be seen or to feel like a leader.
You can focus on your desires and be empowered to pursue your goals, rather than being weighed down by the expectations of others. You can reach a place where you feel proud of who you are and what you have achieved. Our female therapists will walk through the steps to uncover what is standing in the way of you living your best life and help you find solutions to move forward with your goals.
