We women are “Approval seeking” creatures (no offence meant!).
Actually, we have a very strong conditioning since our childhood.
When we are small, we look upto our parents for approval,
when we grow up, it is the “Significant other”, followed by children and so on..
So when life throws any kind of challenges, we actually do not know how to handle.
We quickly get into the “Victim” mode.
If you see, these are escape routes to not to take responsibility.
And I was no different.
I gracefully transitioned from “Approval seeking” to “Victimhood”.
It didn’t work for long as everyone around started to probe….
(People can never see you happy….I tell you…Its like ” If I am suffering how come you are not?”)
Little did they know that there was a tennis match going on inside my head.
I had to Negotiate with my own self. And it was really tough.
Negotiating with outsiders is relatively easy.
I made a simple 6 Step plan for myself and followed it to the dot.
I am sharing the same with you so that you too can adopt the same.
