Mantras to Boost Self-Confidence

Do you orbit around yourself or do you orbit around your parnter?  Or do you orbit around another figure in your life?

  • You feel guilty when you want to take time for yourself and your own priorities.
  • Your moods shift in response to your partner’s moods.
  • You’re constantly tracking his or her state of mind and heart.  At any sign of distress, you feel tension and a need to fix or change his or her state.
  • You’re always flexible and adaptable, putting aside your own plans to go along with your partner’s flow.
  • You’re afraid to rock the boat.
  • You’re always longing for his or her approval.
  • You can never quite feel comfortable in the moment because your energy is not fully grounded within yourself.

Do any of these signs resonate for you?
