Shaming, nagging, yelling, hitting, hurting, whining, or manipulating will help us get what we want or need.
We may get it but…
- It won’t last
- We won’t be able to enjoy it
- We will drive people away from us in the process
- We will turn people into liars or enemies
Because we don’t know an alternative and have learned shaming, nagging, yelling, hitting, hurting, whining, and manipulating from people in our lives, we buy the lie, and continue the insanity.
It took me decades to learn that getting what I wanted was as easy as believing I was worth it, being honest, and setting boundaries.
