It was nearly 10 years ago...

As I looked in the mirror I realized that I did not recognize the person staring back at me. I realized that I had been living a lie for the past 25 years. I realized that I had been sacrificing my own happiness for the happiness of others and it had to stop. I couldn’t keep living this way.

I remember that day like it was yesterday.

You guessed it, I was a people pleaser.  A “yes when I meant no, no when I meant yes,” people pleaser.

It was like every day I was living my life for others. The job I had, the clothes I wore, the people I dated. It was all for someone else.

Until I couldn’t take it anymore.

To save us around 10 hours of catchup I’ve broken down my life into a quick little video. Keep a mental note of the things you can relate to. I have a feeling there might be a few similarities.

FAQ

what is self-love?

What a great question! I like to pull the word apart to get to the core meaning. Self, simply put, is the individual and love means devotion. When we put them together we land on a very clear definition. The devotion to your individuality! If you want to learn more about Self-Love and what it means to truly get devoted to you check out The Self Love Success Path, my flagship course!

i am worried that enrolling in your programs is selfish

I totally hear that. There is a big misconception out there about Self-Love being selfish. The reality is that not loving yourself is actually the most selfish thing you can do in your life. By not loving yourself and hiding the best parts of you the world will not get to experience you in all your glory! My programs have been thoughtfully created to give you the confidence you need to shine your light and thrive!
