I was working on one of my ongoing issues, the need to be approved of, and as I looked for a book to help me get rid of this bad habit, realized that in truth, there was no more work to be done. I had thought about the topic to a base level, and truly understand why I have such a need, and the negative impact it has on my life.
What I needed was to remember what I knew, when the occasion called for it. That’s where a good Mantra comes in. So I created one.
“Be Comfortable Allowing People To Dislike You.”
I posted this at work and at home, and over the next few months, it will become ingrained in myself, at a deep level, finally allowing me the freedom to be myself at a much deeper level, in a number of my relationships.
I look forward to that day.
