Saying Goodbye To Needy! Together we will encourage and support each other to learn what our needs are and have them met in a healthy way.
This event is a poetry reading and discussion for ‘Needy: My Break Up Song’
Needy is a collection of 50 poems that shows a young adult learning and experiencing feelings of needy love; the bittersweet memories. The journey from falling in love to breaking up and other complicated emotions such as, desperation, rejection and acceptance.
I thought I was writing a love song.
I thought love meant that I just had to stick it out through the hard times and things will get better eventually. My perspective on love was warped and wrong. Unfortunately, this mindset caused a lot of trauma and heart ache. However, I was able to work through some of my insecurities with a therapist and I am ready for my next chapter.
Before, The End had a question mark after it.
Now, The End has a period.
This book is my break up song. I am finally letting go of a failed relationship and of my toxic needy traits. I am saying goodbye to needy.
I Am Needy is about sharing my expereince and encouraging others to love themselves. There is nothing wrong with having needs. It is just important to know that if it comes from a place of seeking eternal validation it can be toxic.
This is a safe space for healthy discussion and growth. To learn how to go from ‘I Am Needy’ into ‘I Know My Needs’.
