I am really influenced by other people's opinions, perspectives, etc. So much so that I often doubt my own.
This is probably largely due to a lack of validation when I was growing up ... I learned to believe there was something wrong with me because I was too sensitive, introverted, etc. I'm sure most people here can identify with that.
I'm wondering who this 'there's something wrong with you' energy belongs to. On the one hand,it came from people around me when I was young so it's theirs but, on the other,it's been with me for so long it feels like something I have to deal with.
I think what I'm trying to ask is 'is this energy something I just need to hand back or is it something I need to process too? Or both? Maybe process is the wrong word but I feel like I need to give it some attention ... I can't just ignore it.
This always confuses me.
