What I have to learn and remember is not to forget myself. Not to forget my needs, my desire to speak up and tell a story or describe my feelings. I am good at asking thoughtful questions. I am good at being there for others. I have got to allow others to be there for me, too!
Don’t wait for them to ask the right questions. Start telling your story now. It will make you feel better. It will make you feel seen, heard and in the best case also understood. You just have to start putting yourself first and let others be the listeners.
