When we loosen and dissolve our own inner experience of fear, we’re able to meet and connect with others in a clean, clear, deep, fearless space. Not to complete each other but to complement.
The little girl inside you
Many women have felt at some point in their lives “neediness.”
You can say that feeling needy is an aspect of the “Little Girl” archetype that we all have within us. While innocent, precious, and pure, the Little Girl within us can also be needed when she’s living in fear.
“Neediness” is a state that happens when we think that our needs are dependent on another person. But, of course, as children, this is an actuality.
But, as adults, “neediness” is felt more when we’re not living in our Full, Conscious Whole Self.
Feeling “needy” from time to time is perfectly natural, and it’s okay! It’s life; it happens to any of us at some point or another.
BUT, it becomes an issue because most of us don’t know how to care for ourselves when we feel this way! So, usually, what happens is we look to another person or “thing” to make us feel Whole again.
This is the same as looking for love (success/appreciation, anything really) outside of you. Looking for your sense of completion “out there” in the end makes us feel worse. And resentful.
As a woman in business, I was always very reluctant to show any “neediness”/vulnerability and used to be incredibly annoyed at other women who did. Mainly when they were using their Little Girl with men ( in a work contest) to get their way. Albeit I still believe that to be wrong (Little Girl with men in power in the work context to get what you want- I cannot even count how many ways), I have grown to be comfortable in having weak moments and feeling needy. And most importantly, show it.
Vulnerability gives you strength: don’t silence the little girl inside of you; embrace it instead. And then, with conscious awareness to them, return to the wholeness that we are, a Fully Embodied Women.
If you haven’t gathered it by now, I’m writing for women (and people who identify as women) 😉
See you tomorrow x
