Today I heard from a client: I hate that I am needy. And my response was - hold on a second. You are a human being, not a robot. Human beings are BORN bidding for connection. Think of a little newborn baby. The moment a baby is born, they reach out, cry out, express need to be held close and comforted.
The human need for connection is inherent and is wired into our attachment systems and nervous systems. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you for having needs. In fact, that desire for connection is a sign of health.
Right now, I’m stuck in the comparison trap. That’s exactly what the comparison trap does to us - makes us completely stuck. Unable to move, express, take action. It just sucks our energy, self-esteem, confidence, creativity, and uniqueness and makes us hide, stay small, stay invisible.
