Ever the arty Autie

Boundaries and how to stop being a compulsive pleaser


Feeling music by Donna Williams

Sick of attracting needy, greedy, me me me types? Then….

don’t strive to be needed
don’t strive to be wanted
don’t even strive to be loved
nor even to be liked

nor strive to like someone
nor even love them

WHEN you like yourself
WHEN you have come to love that self
it is like sunshine
it warms those who come into contact with it.

it resonates with those who like themselves
and that’s how you’ll attract healthy people

people who won’t need you
who won’t want you because of their own emptiness
who won’t enjoy the freebie of being loved by someone just because they need it
who won’t need to be liked because they already like themselves
