The feeling that everyone has it figured out except for me. Trying to change myself to please someone.

The sense that I have to live up to another person’s expectations. Worry and guilt, because they accomplish nothing!

Blame. It doesn’t absolve. Taking things personally and the impulse to be cruel.

Any claim that I am not enough.

Trying to change another person into what I think is best.

Whatever anybody is saying about me and the urge to gossip.

Lies. And, no, they are never “necessary”. No one needs their truth “managed”.

Control. Everyone has a right to their own thoughts and actions.
