Of course my first reaction was that I must be a pretty awful person. Me to myself: "You Suck!".
It was in fact deeper than that. My thoughts were quite sucky but it was coming from an understandable place. I was afraid to let people down. What if I screw up? What if I don't have the right answer?
So it was fear. My family wasn't the reason for my overwhelm and fatigue.It was the constant replay of how I am not going to live up to what I promised.
Bottomline: In any realm of life you are going to be successful based on being needed.
This is frightening because you have fallen short of many promises thus far. However, this is something to look into and confront. Most of all it is something to overcome.
I'm going to take a wild guess and say that you probably have trust issues.the fear of being needed is not about trusting others, it is about trusting yourself.
The only way to build self trust is to learn to follow through. In your career, where are areas that you have just not followed through? Did you drop out of school? Has you effort to find a new career been half ass?
The first person that needs you is you. If you are making sure that no one needs you then you are surely treating yourself the same way.
Lets kick this off my me needing YOU.
I need you to assess what you have to offer and think of who may need those skills and talents. Who are you robbing of your skills and talents? We need you.
