Ignoring My Own Needs
This is generally a good thing, but when taken to the extreme, like in my case, it can have the opposite effect. I am a constant people-pleaser, putting everyone else before me and ignoring my own needs. Maybe I do it to get others to like me. Maybe I don't feel worthy of fulfilling my needs. Maybe I define my worth based on what I have done for others. Whatever the reason, I rarely say no to anyone; I feel obligated to do what others ask of me. I always try to convince myself that it doesn't matter anyways, that I'm doing the right thing by making the other person happy. I think I need to be more assertive and start acknowledging that I have needs of my own that deserve to be met.
