Last week, we talked about the desperation which comes from the desire to control outside circumstances. Today, we will focus on the desperation associated with people and their presence in our lives.
When we love and care about someone, it’s natural to fear to lose them since they matter to us. But what about people who don’t care about us and don’t respect us? Why do we put them on some sort of pedestal?
We begin to lower our standards and ignore our boundaries because we are afraid that people won’t live up to them but leave. Instead of resolving our own issues, traumas and pains, we expect others to validate us and give us the love we crave.
That’s when we find ourselves tolerating poor behaviors and begin to keep people around for desperate reasons.
I’ve been in this place for a very long time and I know how exhausting and hurtful it may be. That’s why I decided to dedicate this podcast episode to every woman who is ready to find her worth and love herself entirely.
