This weeks Lifebook journal page is about connections. I used a quote by DJ Williams on the page.
I really want connections in my life that are authentic. I am a bit of a chameleon; I tend to blend in, fade into the back ground, or change in order to fit in. This comes from an irrational fear of wanting to not stand out or be judged, and wanting to be liked. These feelings and behaviour are something I have been working on for a while, but they are not something that goes away easily.
I have to remind myself it is none of my business what others think of me- I just need to be me. A hard lesson for me to learn is that I can't please everyone and being a people pleaser is very stressful.
After years of being different people to everyone it is going to take some time to relax into myself. I just hope that the more I put myself out there and be true to myself and who I am becoming that others will feel the same and begin to uncover themselves as well.
