Why Can’t I Ask For What I Need?

In Advice and Encouragement, Mental and Emotional Health, Podcast by Debra FiletaLeave a Comment

Are you good at sharing your needs with others? Most people aren’t.

Today on the podcast, Erin from Texas called in to talk to me about the fact that she has a really hard time opening up with others and being vulnerable about what she really needs and how she feels.

She’s seen patterns in her life of putting others first and staying silent about her own needs…until it’s become problematic.

We unpack some of the relationships where she struggles the most, and then I ask her some questions to help her get to the root of WHY — so she can begin making changes! If you have a hard time sharing your needs, listening to this conversation will get you processing your own story and give you some steps you can take to begin making changes in this really important area of your life!!
