How to know you matter

By Marion Nixon

August 16, 2022

This week I’ve experienced the benefit of asking for help. I’ve been packing up a family member’s flat in another town and asked a cousin to go with me as my siblings are scattered across 3 other continents. It’s been hard work sorting out stuff collected over decades, a lot of it family history. On my own it would have been overwhelming.

At one time I would have pushed through on my own, feeling more and more isolated as I got more and more tired. Today I was so grateful that I’m now comfortable asking for help. Some time ago I wrote about giving and receiving: giving requires a receiver, and to receive, requires a giver, setting up a reciprocal motion that becomes one gesture, open hands. And so in receiving I give the gift of giving, which I now realize is really the gift of knowing you matter, and that I matter.

What have you recently received in a way that reassures the giver that they matter? And in receiving have you also accepted feeling that you matter? Because that’s what it’s about, that’s what creates the connection and sense of belonging, of community, that is essential to your well-being.

At one time in my life I felt that I didn’t belong. It took a lot of inner work to change my perception and realise that I do belong. Now I can help you navigate from one to the other. Please don’t stay in the state of not belonging. It’s a lonely place. Asking for help is the way into a much fuller and richer life. I know how scary asking for help feels, and I also know that the first step is self-acceptance… giving to and receiving from yourself. That’s why turning your Inner Critic into a Supportive Fan is so important.  Give me a call.
