Showing Up For Yourself

Do you ever abandon your own strengths, needs, or voice in an effort to avoid discomfort - others' or your own?
Christi Hegstad September 16th, 2020

“Don’t abandon yourself.”

I’ve heard this phrase in myriad places lately and it has really struck a chord.

There are so many ways we might abandon ourselves:

* Not speaking up,

* Compromising our values,

* Playing small,

to name a few.

And maybe it’s just me and my interpretation, but it seems we often abandon ourselves to avoid the possibility of discomfort – others’ and/or our own.

Does this resonate with you, too?

If so, I encourage you to intentionally move toward the opposite:

Show up for yourself.

We can do this in so many ways. For starters:

* Declining an offer when we already feel stretched too thin.

* Dedicating time to a creative project for no other reason than personal enjoyment.

* Reaching out for help rather than trying to figure everything out ourselves.

How might you show up for yourself this week?
