Unworthiness and shame



The Need to Please: Mindfulness Skill to gain freedom from People Pleasing and Approval Seeking: Micki Fine


“Feelings of unworthiness and shame will snowball in the face of the impossible task of pleasing everyone all the time.



Even though you may know logically that this goal is impossible,


that doesn’t sink in at an emotional level because of how strong the underlying motivation is.


Instead, you’ll probably continue to expect yourself to achieve this unrealistic and unrealized goal,


causing additional feelings of shame, guilt,


and unworthiness for falling short of your expectations for yourself.”
