question 4

I've been in the
medical field
19
years (x-ray tech)
and have been
told that I'm very
good at my pro-
fession, but I can't
find that level of
confidence in
myself. I'm always
nervous with
difficult patients
and blush easily when making
mistakes. Is this
a part of being
anxious to please?

James:
What you’re describing is very common with people who are anxious to please. It's important to know that this doesn’t happen because of a lack of courage or character. It happens because of a lack of security deep inside. Building that sense of security takes time, but ultimately it can change your whole life. By exploring your fears and subsequent behaviors, you are opening yourself to healing and growth.
