Heartfully with Crista Beck Episode 7

Have you ever held back from expressing what you truly needed in a relationship for fear of being high maintenance? If you have, you’re not alone. The signs are there—bending over backwards to accommodate others, keeping quiet about your desires, or feeling depleted because your essential needs went unspoken, and therefore, unmet.

Neglecting our own needs can have detrimental effects on both our personal well-being and the health of our relationships. It’s a silent form of self-sacrifice that benefits no one in the long run.

In this episode I reevaluate the term “high maintenance” and encourage each of you to reflect on your personal needs within your relationships and to begin the beautiful, sometimes challenging, but ultimately rewarding process of expressing them.
