Elevate Your Confidence To Pursue Your Dreams With Passion
How To Express Your Needs Without Guilt
Shutting down (or stuffing in our emotions) doesn’t solve the root of your dissatisfaction; it only exacerbates it further until your bottled emotions erupt into an emotional tantrum.
Because if you have the pattern of not expressing your needs clearly, it is likely that, eventually, your numbed feelings will erupt like a volcano causing you to snap at people or say things you regret.
Have you ever vented to your friends about a mean boss or overly competetive co-workers?
A not so shocking fact is that only 12 % of employees who leave a well-paid job is for financial reasons… The other 88 percent boils down to job dissatisfaction and NOT feeling appreciated.
Isn’t it ironic how often high-earners feel pressured to perform well while struggling with mental health issues, an IMPOSTER Syndrome, lack of sleep, low energy, chronic stress…and a crumbling relationship at home?!
You deserve BETTER!
When we feel underappreciated we: * Are less productive * Withdraw emotionally * Feel taken for granted * Lose trust and respect * Lack deep contentment * Experience insecurities * Have lower life satisfaction * Have lower job satisfaction
And as Stephen Covey said: “Next to physical survival, the greatest need of a human being is psychological survival — to be understood, to be affirmed, to be validated, to be appreciated.” Remember… what you appreciate, appreciates back! For a transformation to occur in your relationships, it has to occur in YOU first, and in your ability to set better boundaries with others.
Do you feel like your communication style often causes you to feel misunderstood, unheard, or undervalued at work or in your personal relationships?
Do you often focus on being so caring towards others that you forget your own needs?
Do you find yourself trying to take responsibility for other people’s feelings and problems to the point of emotional burnout?
Do you often say YES to things you don’t want to do because you don’t know how to say ‘no’ without disappointing others, expressing your true feelings without guilt, or causing confrontation?
Do you want to communicate openly without compromising your needs even if you fear confrontation?
Take charge of your life by learning to set better boundaries with others and living life, free from the fear of rejection or what other people think of you.
This applies to your work environment as well.
You are either a good communicator or not!
When you feel upset/annoyed/frustrated, do you tend to close off instead of speaking up?
Do you tend to bottle down your emotions, or do you know how to express them without sounding accusative or defensive?
Clear, non-violent communication that delivers our emotions directly and compassionately is key to resolving any conflict.
