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?
Thich Nhat Hanh said, “If you love someone, the greatest gift you can give them is your presence. How can you love, if you are not even there?”
Not everyone is an active listener though…most people listen with their ears only, and not their hearts
