Anybody else struggle with this?
I'm a libra. Was never big on zodiac signs but i just read something about it yesterday that almost described me to exact *. It's almost scary.
One of the things it mentioned was that we have this obsession of always feeling the need to please everybody else, "You find that you do not really like yourself and/or beating yourself up over not being able to please another.
", which i relate to.
Ive always been that way, which is why i believe im so sensitive towards criticism, "and among their faults is an impatience of criticism and a greed for approval"
It also talks about that libra's are very trusting, diplomatic, critical and stuff - thats me!
Being black, living were i live and the enviroment i did i always had this weird thing about not being a "stereotype" around people, which is a form of pleasing someone else. Especially in places like work and stuff.
Now, the point is that mixed with SA only makes it harder for me. One on hand i dont wanna be "too..." of anything, good or bad, or coming of as a try hard, but then if i dont then ill become a outcast, say at a job or so.
The constant need to please everybody makes me obsessed with needing to make sure people dont think negatively of me, which is so extra draining with SA. So instead i end up between 2 extremes, either supe stale with a bad mood cuz i get upset about it or trying extremely hard to look "comfortable" and sociable, even tho i ironically aint. So i end up becoming seriously weird and then super drained at the end either way.
So i wonder if i ever can overcome SA with stuff like this, especially in work enviroments which is my biggest fear right now. How can i feel relaxed or confident enough if all i keep thinking of is how im percieved and pleasing everyone..
Anybody else who can relate?
