You have needs―your needs matter. And yet, you've been taught that pushing your needs to the back burner is the only way to get things done, that your needs are an overwhelming burden, or that self-care is a luxury you can't afford. But the presence of your needs is a fact and not a flaw. You can reclaim your energy and take up space in your own life.
In Needy, Mara Glatzel shares her unique approach to identifying, honoring, and advocating for the most tender and true parts of yourself that yearn to be acknowledged. She invites you to embody self-acceptance, which leads to meaningful growth in self-responsibility, self-care, self-trust, and self-love.
Woven with threads of timeless wisdom, honest assessments of our needs, and heartfelt personal stories of transformation, Needy illustrates a profound vision of what is possible when you listen to the stirrings of your heart and reclaim your undisputed sovereignty.
Through thought-provoking exercises, daily check-ins, and journal prompts, Glatzel shows us how to carve out a path to do things in our own way and on our own terms―even if that feels scary or impossible right now. In practicing this work, you will begin to see how to live your life with unshakable confidence, knowing that you can exist in all your humanity because you are enough exactly as you are. These powerful teachings will show you how to:
• Live your life, instead of allowing your life to live you
• Significantly improve your relationships with family, friends, and coworkers
• Speak, think, and listen in ways that honor your needs and boundaries
• Break patterns that lead to stress, resentment, guilt, and shame
• Release what no longer serves you, and heal the layers of hurt you’ve been carrying
Needy is a moving call to action that will awaken hearts, illuminate the path home to ourselves, and provide the tools to forge a life we love. Now is the time to bravely step into your next chapter, grounded in principles that last an eternity.
