Have you ever been on a weird first date, work or family function where people start asking you inappropriate questions?
They may come completely out of nowhere and catch you off guard.
If you’re at all empathetic, you may be very attuned to other people’s feelings and have a hard time setting boundaries when faced with an unexpected question you just don’t want to answer!
This could be anything from, “Why aren’t you married yet?” to “How much did you pay for that new car you got?”
Or one or my favorites for first dates: “So… how long have you been on (insert dating app). Why are you still single?”
So annoying, right?

Doubting yourself and why someone is with you?

And you can use them to create, change and shape your reality.

How was your weekend? I’m currently visiting family in California and it was super surreal to go on an airplane/be in an airport.
I have this ritual of reading magazines in the kiosk before flying and as I headed happy towards the Newsstand, I realized that they had taken most of the magazines out for COVID. My heart sank and for a moment I wasn’t sure what to do.
Such a simple thing, but it had been part of my pre-flight self care ritual for so long, I felt like a kid who had their favorite candy bar discontinued.
And it struck me that I was feeling super uncomfortable with my own discomfort.
Have you ever felt that way?

When those irrational insecurities, fears and doubts creep up… I feel like it’s the true litmus test of self-love.
