I’d like to tell you a story about a woman who changed her life. In the beginning of her career, she worked incredibly hard but seemed not to be advancing. She took poor care of herself and allowed others to dictate practically everything she did. She felt depressed, worn-out, and unhealthy. She had no time for herself and was lonely and disconnected.
Finally, one day she realized that there was no way to go but out, and that she must learn how to stand up for herself. From that moment on, she began to show up for her life as her own advocate, and stopped allowing everyone else’s needs to come first. Today, she is successful in her career, feels soul-satisfied, and is surrounded by loving family and friends.
This woman was me.
(For the whole story, go here)
My whole life I had been an “over-responsibility person” – I was going to do whatever it took to make sure everyone around me was happy, satisfied, and ok. This intense need of mine to be responsible for everyone and everything stemmed from growing up with a perpetually ill mother who depended on me and needed for me to be the adult in the family. Making sure that everyone else was happy was a major piece of my identity and how I perceived my value in the world.
When I opened the doors to my business in 2007, my over-accommodating self was in full swing. I had no concept of boundaries AT ALL. I worked 80+ hour work weeks; scheduled sessions with clients whenever they wanted one (including 6:00am or 11:00pm at night); traveled all over Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens to have those sessions (instead of deciding that clients must travel to me); spent hours daily on client follow-up via email; and charging as low as $15 per session (and my travel time; I’m not kidding!).
You know what the result was? I was thoroughly exhausted, sick much of the time, isolated from friends and family… and pretty much broke!
Since then, I have been working on my boundaries and systems and on activating the Warrior Woman inside of me, and now I’m proud to share that I work no more than 25 hours most weeks! I continuously raise my rates and charge what I’m worth and my yearly earnings are in the multiple six figures. The best part: my clients receive MORE value than ever before and I have time and energy left over for myself, my family, and my life! I have a team that supports me in every aspect of my business and I take self-care 100% seriously and receive regular massages, acupuncture, etc.!
I want the same for you too!
