robin | coach + photographer on Instagram: "Women are taught to be submissive & let other people be the center. We're sold the idea that if we let folks have what they want, even if it's not what we want, then at least we can have "connection.” We likely saw the women who raised us do this & it's endlessly reinforced in tv & movies.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ So what do we do with the wants & needs that would put us in direct conflict with others? Stuff them down so far deep inside that maybe even WE don't know what they are.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ We were taught this is “healthy compromise.” But really it's deeply self-abandoning. And healthy relationships aren't based on self-sacrifice - they're based on BOTH people's needs being centered.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ It’d be ideal if as you got this for yourself, everyone in your life got on board with it too. But the reality is as you discover more about your true needs & bring them forward, it will challenge the relationships where your willingness to self-abandon is what made the relationship “work.”​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ Things may get tense & you may even lose some relationships. But you finally won’t be compromising yourself in the relationship that matters most - the one you have with YOURSELF.​​​​​​​​ My coaching sessions are a safe, empowering place to discover more about what you want & develop the skills to bring this forward in your life.
