And How you can become immobilized & traumatized by it

Find yourself afraid you’re not good enough? You won’t be hired? You won’t be wanted? Loved? Accepted? Fear of rejection may be the culprit underlying those thoughts. SO IMPORTANT to recognize so you can overcome the fears that may be holding you back from healthier relationships with yourself and others…including the NASTY Hijackals!
