Women tend to be natural born nurturers.
We love to help.
We are always "doing" for others.
When you think about what women want most (to be heard, valued, understood), the question bears asking, "why are women always giving to the point of exhaustion?
Yes, you "choose" to allow others to take these things from you. Every woman has a choice about how she will allow others to interact in her life. We teach people how to treat us!
When you understand that every choice you make is based on a belief that you have, you can now ask yourself the following questions:
Every woman on this planet is meant to shine like the brightest star in the sky because EVERY woman matters. Every woman should be heard, valued and understood. Every woman has the ability to live an empowered life.
Let's begin with the obvious question. Ask yourself, "when do I give away my power?"
Here is where the self-empowerment starts: when you can ask that question and find an answer that does not blame another person, place or event. We all have times when something happens in our life and we truly feel that the event was caused by someone or something else. But the truth is, we create our reality.We all have stories that we tell ourselves about why we are so good at certain things, how we have risen above situations and challenges and even why we choose to live the life we live.
But what about those stories we tell ourselves about why we "CAN'T" do something? I'm not smart enough, rich enough, educated enough, popular enough, healthy enough, it's my job and if I don't do it I will get fired, he/she is so tired so I should help them, (the list goes on and on). These stories and others like them keep us from living the abundant life we are meant to live.
Where do these stories come from? Have you ever asked yourself, "When did I first start to believe that I was incapable of something? When did I first start to believe that it is my duty to put others before myself?"
When you give yourself permission to ask where your stories come from and then take it a step farther and ask, "Is this absolutely true or could there be another answer?" This is when your mind is now open to possibilities that can absolutely change your life!
When you are ready to live a self-preserving life, you will begin to see opportunities when someone wants a piece of your time, your livelihood, your expertise, or even your strength and the kindest answer you can give is "NO!". This is the kindest answer you can give because your are finally valuing yourself enough to stop putting the needs of others before your own.
If you are worn out, tired, overworked, depressed, and sad, it is possible that you are not being heard, valued and understood.
When you are ready to value your "SELF" others will see your value as well. Strive to be "self-preserving" every single day and watch the abundance unfold before your very eyes!
