This episode of Spirituality Unpacked is about this concept of needing to fit in and be accepted. We all have it and we all do it to some degree. Today I'm talking about my personal experience with it over the last couple of days and how I had to shift a pattern I had around the formality of my work. I got asked to relax as it were.
The thing with fitting in is it creates co-dependency. It's the need for approval from other people. We try to make ourselves fit into their definitions of what or who people should be. When we do that, we disempower ourselves. We become something we're not and we do things that go against who we are.
