If you’re like so many women I’ve worked with, you’ve wondered if maybe it’s not okay to be who you are in a relationship.
You’ve had your feelings hurt by a man who just didn’t understand why you were so upset about such “trivial” things…(when to you they were anything BUT.)
And when you’ve spoken up about something you didn’t like, it backfired.
He thought you were “high maintenance” or “impossible to please” or he withdrew, maybe even going away altogether.
You’ve looked around and noticed that other women just don’t seem to be as affected by things as much as you are.
You’ve overheard your friends talking with their boyfriends or husbands and thought to yourself, “How does she put up with that?”
In short, you feel misunderstood. And you have trouble understanding how other people seem to be okay in their relationships, when you’ve never found one that was truly a fit.
Almost everyone has the “what the heck is wrong with me” voice, but yours seems to be extra loud.
Years of being told you’re “too emotional” or “too intense,” too this or too that—or being ghosted when you thought something special was happening—have made you think that maybe it’s better if you hold back a little. Retreat. Not reveal your true colors. Too dangerous.
Instead, you’ve settled for being beige.
You’ve learned to keep quiet even though your insides are burning up.
You’ve learned to not ask for anything, because you’ve been told you ask for too much.
You pretend to be blind to glaring red flags.
A guy is paying attention to you and wants to be with you? DANGER, DANGER! Let’s not make any waves here and show that you have wants and needs, for fear he’ll jump ship.
You want him to call you when he says he will or show up for plans? Best let it go when he goes MIA for a whole weekend and then reappears on Monday night—you’re lucky there’s a live one on your doorstep.
And you apologize. A lot.
“I don’t mean to be a pain, but…”
“Please don’t take this the wrong way…”
“I’m so sorry, I was just…”
“Oh, don’t worry, it’s really not a big deal…”
Ever caught yourself apologizing for something you’ve said or are about to say?
That’s classic for the soulfully sensitive woman.
“Don’t mind me” is your unofficial credo.
You marvel at the confident (ahem, bitchy) women who seem to be able to say their piece without fear of repercussion.
Rehearse things over and over in your head, and then you still kick yourself after you say it.
This has to stop!
Here’s my non-astrological prediction for you if you carry on hiding or apologizing for who you are:
And here’s the part I reeeaallly want you to get:
That self you are working SO hard to hide is actually pretty awesome!
I know, I know. This is NOT what you’ve been told. At least that’s how it appears on the surface. I’m willing to bet you can come up with a number of ways you’re appreciated for ALL you are.
Think about your family, friends, colleagues…your accomplishments.
Where have you kicked some serious butt? How have you shined? When have you overcome obstacles that at one time seemed impossible?
I’m willing to bet that in every one of those instances, it was your soulful sensitivity that gave you the edge.
Which is why you must do yourself and all of us a favor by learning how to make the most of it!

P.S. My friend and coach Rhonda Britten teaches something I love:
No matter who you are, or what you do, pretty much all of us have the same formula in relationships:
1/3 of people will like you. 1/3 won’t. The other 1/3 will be neutral.
So don’t knock yourself out to please anyone ever again—focus on finding YOUR PEOPLE and forget about everyone else… Get Your Self Esteem Super Boost
