When Someone Tells You You're Too Much, Here's How To Take That

A girlfriend told me her father told her she was just too much when she was young.


My mom told me I was too smart to find a man.


Many of us have been told we’re too something.


The underlying message is this, you need to be different, you need to be less. And sadly, we often take that criticism on and become smaller, less of ourselves.


Try this ONE thing


What if we took a moment to question whether their indictment of who we are is true? Is there any evidence to back up their criticism? Can you find evidence to the contrary?


I’m sure you’ll find, as I have, that you’re not too much, you’re just too much for them…and that’s a completely different story. You, and I, are the perfect amount of much.

Hey! Are you already successful and accomplished? Do you have many things to appreciate about your life right now? Are you always open to learning more and growing yourself?


Despite all your successes, do you sometimes doubt yourself? Do you hesitate to go after what you really want in life?


Or maybe you dismiss your past successes, putting them down to luck, and don’t really see how extraordinary you really are?


If this sounds like you, you and I should have a conversation. Drop me a line here, karen.laidlaw.theONEthing@outlook.com, and let’s talk!
