Reclaiming Yourself – 3 Healthy Changes You Must Make by Laura Lynn Smith

Abandoning yourself for different things can leave you in a state of meaninglessness. The same are the results when you choose to work with a false-self system where you edit your thoughts and rehearse emotions and perform according to what you feel others expect from you.
