Most of us are loath to appear too needy or desperate for love and affection. When we’re needy, we’re overly identified with a younger part of us that’s emotionally stuck in a lie. Internally, we’ve become our inner 12-year-old again, filled with the shameful recognition that, somehow, we’re less than others.
To hide this, some of us have turned away from our needs entirely. Literally pretending we have no needs. Or we negate, dismiss or minimize our needs to ensure they don’t get in the way.
Yet in doing so, we fail to recognize that most of our needs are actually healthy. Expecting others who are close to us to care about and respond to them is not only appropriate, but necessary to the growth of healthy, happy love.
In Katherine’s sixth video module, you’ll…
• Discover the difference between your unhealthy needs and your healthy needs, and claim a sense of healthy entitlement to have your needs considered and honored in all of your closest relationships
• Learn to lower your reactivity and respond to the tender self in your body who is still suffering over unmet childhood needs that show up as neediness in your life today
• Recognize and begin honoring your own needs at the deepest level, so that you’re no longer subjugating or minimizing them to try to be loved by others
• Find out the most constructive ways to share your needs with others in ways that inspire them to do their best to meet them
