False Identities to Release

I am crazy 💭

I am too much 💭


Do you recognize these symptoms or behaviors that perpetuate the wound?

🌀  Constantly misunderstood and told to calm down, be quiet and/or stop moving.

🌀  Others are intimidated / overwhelmed by the bigness of my ambition, energy, speed, creative pursuits, voice, etc.

🌀  Chronically repress my needs / desires, never asking for their fulfillment, fearing that they are “too much” for others.

🌀  Overstay in relationships / situations that require self-containment, thus denying my soul’s grandest and truest self-expression.

🌀  Always shrink to meet others where they’re at and/or have dramatic outbursts just to be seen, heard and/or understood.

🌀  Others feel threatened when I am fully myself and therefore ostracize / leave me.

🌀  Incapable of receiving, always the giver.
