You have a difficult time asking for what you need in your relationships. 

You have a difficult time accepting help from others. 

You have had a complicated relationship with your body.

The relationship with your family can be overwhelming at times but is hard to imagine how it could be different. 

You have been told that you are “too sensitive” by others.

You have a hard time identifying what you are feeling and what to do with your emotions. 

You are afraid to “feel your emotions” because you feel that you will be angry, cry, or be out of control. 

You do not feel good about your body and have tried several diets and workout programs.

You are often the “problem solver” or “mediator” in your family. 

You feel like you cannot be your authentic self around others.
