“I’m going to leave that with you”: Why many of us should be thinking (saying in our heads!) these words a lot more

Leave That With You FacebookWe are constantly working with clients, who, with the best of intentions, take on the responsibility of other people’s emotions. They would rather say “yes”, even if it gets in the way of their own personal health in order to avoid disappointing someone else.

The problem with focusing on the wants and needs of others is that it pulls you away from being present and prioritizing what is best for you in the long run.

Certainly, being caring, generous and compassionate with others are wonderful characteristics and we are not saying to be selfish all the time.

What we are saying, though, is that you need to be kind and honest with yourself in this crazy world we live in.

 

You need to make sure to prioritize your needs when making choices that affect your mental health status.

Let’s put it this way, if disappointing someone else makes your heart start racing...perhaps it is time to learn a new skill!

The next time you are in a position where you are asked by someone to do something and you know it’s not the right choice for you. Work on saying no, kindly, and being firm with your decision. The rest, you have “to leave with them”.
