While the US may be a nation focused heavily on individualism, the reality is that most of us are not encouraged or even taught how to properly advocate for ourselves. Whether we’re advocating for ourselves to develop better habits and prioritize our mental health, bodies, and rest; or advocating for ourselves in relationships with others, most of us could use some empowering support and validation.
For many of us, by the time we realize we need to advocate for ourselves, we’re about to burst from all the times we didn’t prioritize doing so. Having an outside perspective on your advocacy habits and skills can significantly improve your ability to stand up for yourself as you need whether to others or even your worst self on a bad day.
