Happy Monday!

I often work with women who find themselves struggling with people pleasing. To combat this, we often process if the actions and words being used are reflective of what is felt in the here and now or is it more reflective of how those around you want you to feel? An example being apologizing! If apologizing is a automatic reaction, challenge it. Why are you apologizing? If the answer to that doesn’t align with how you feel, don’t say it lol!

Do you struggle with critical or negative thinking?

Do you struggle with critical or negative thinking? It takes consistency and intentionality but, negative thoughts can be successfully challenged and changed over time. These thoughts don’t have to become your truth! Here’s a great way to start challenging those thoughts! #Therapy #Chicagotherapist #Counseling #Nowseeingclients #Virtualtherapy #Telehealth #Onlinetherapy #Onlinetherapist #Blackgirltherapist  #Womenstherapist #Therapistofcolor

While all of these are soooo true…

While all of these are soooo true…that first one hits different! I’m guilty of it myself. But, what im learning sis is being humble is not the same as minimizing or shrinking yourself. So, next time someone gives you a compliment…Be intentional about simply saying thank you WITHOUT minimizing 🖤.

Let’s talk about it!

There is so much freedom in letting go of certain norms that we are taught to seek in our relationships with others and even in our relationship with ourselves. How different would life be if you no longer needed external permission to move on or if you made a practice of asking for what you wanted/needed from those around you? Would you be less anxious, or less frustrated? What do you need to let go of?  What do you need to ask for?

Happy Tuesday! This is such a wonderful reminder.

What’s become so apparent to me over the years is that the journey is also apart of the goal. There is no definitive end point to healing. It’s all about the little things you can do along the way. So, what are you still learning??? #Therapy #Chicagotherapist #Counseling #Nowseeingclients #Virtualtherapy #Telehealth #Onlinetherapy #Onlinetherapist #Blackgirltherapist  #Womenstherapist #Therapistofcolor
