A new book explores how to better live your life with respect to personal and emotional needs and boundaries.
When the world demands alot from you, it becomes very easy to push self-care to the side to focus on other people, serving them, and building them up while focusing on work and life. It becomes easy to neglect yourself, to fail to meet your own needs.
In her new book Needy: How to Advocate for Your Needs and Claim Your Sovereignty Hardcover, intuitive coach and podcast host Mara Glatzel addresses this tendency for people to put their own needs on the back burner, reminding people that they can make space for themselves in their lives.
Glatzel draws upon her work as a life coach to help readers explore concepts like self-acceptance, self-responsibility, self-care, self-trust, and self-love—building strategies through daily exercises to help readers live a better life, improve communication skills, build stronger boundaries, and relieve stress.
“Stop working on yourself and start working with yourself. You can feel worthy without striving, compromising your needs, or over-delivering. You can tell yourself the truth about what you want. You can reclaim your energy and take up space in your own life. The conversation begins here,” says Glatzel.
A Short Excerpt
“This book is for those who have needs, especially those of us who pretend they don’t,” says the publisher.
“It’s important for you to know that no matter how far in the margins you find yourself, you always have permission to abandon that course of action and to restructure your life by bridging yourself to the center of it. At the crux of this rebuilding and learning to identify, honor, and advocate for your needs are both the truth that you are needy and that you have full, unbridled, and inexplicable permission to be that way.”
Needy: How to Advocate for Your Needs and Claim Your Sovereignty was released on February 28, 2023, by Sounds True.
