Does the thought of being alone fill you with dread or are you maintaining your distance just because it’s safer to do so?
Well I felt exactly the same
I'd always had a level of independence that had served me well even through the hard times but it was only when my fear of being alone overrode my once buoyant self-esteem to a degree that led me to over care for others because of my fear of abandonment. Until this time I'd felt okay in my own company but my feelings of isolation were so impacting that they made me make bad choices and decisions. I'm also ashamed to say that my conduct in a rebound relationship that had consumed me was so out of character that I found it hard to move away until that is I started using movies as a way to recognize my behavior and this in turn led me to detach from unions that didn’t serve me well but this is only half the story as emotions are like a muscle that you have to flex.
Why I used movies
I'm different now largely due to the fact that I identified that I acted in a way that related to my type when crisis loomed because I was trying to protect what little self-esteem I had left but I badly needed to change as the impact my personality traits were having on my confidence were detrimental. The problem was I had a distinct lack of immediate role models so I turned to movie characters to help me open my eyes and recognize how I attached to others and I then began to act in a way that allowed me to show what I was willing to accept in terms of their behavior towards me and visa versa.
Can I help you?
If you're struggling to assert yourself because it's easier than challenging others or if you’re tired of being in control all the time then I understand just how you feel right now but rest assured your situation IS redeemable.
