When I think about connecting with my inner self, accepting who I am and letting my true self out. I get nervous if the reactions of those around me. Throwing them off balance.
My biggest is Dave. Being my fiance, he will get all of my true self.
Then it would be my immediate family and friends.
Then it would be the reactions of those from work. Would it compromise my job at all?
Thinking this way makes me feel like I can’t be my true self because of people pleasing. Being my true self is something that nothing should stop. Especially other people. It isn’t a selfish act. It’s being true to myself.
I believe any negative reaction from those around me would be because of how they’ve seen me and any changes would question them. Connecting with myself is for me not for others.
