Ask Yourself...

What am I overcompensating for?

(Answer In The Comments Below )
From "100 Of The Most Powerful Questions You Can Ask Yourself"

Nothing has the power to completely alter perspective and therefore your thoughts and actions and life quite like a question. Inquiry leads to understanding. The quality of the answers we arrive at, correspond directly to the quality of question we ask. The better the question, the better the answer. One of the most important things to realize about a question is that a person learns far, far more from the process and work involved in answering a question than from the answer itself. This is why spiritual teachers throughout history (including myself) have tended to pose so many questions to their students rather than to simply offer a direct answer. For this reason, I have selected a collection of 100 of the most powerful questions that you can ask yourself.

Make sure to take time to carefully consider each question that is posed in order to meaningfully answer them. And don’t forget to come back to these questions again and again throughout your life, especially whenever you are feeling stuck, because the answers will most likely change over the course of your life and also cause you to change your course in life.

for the feeling of being behind in life, not "succeeding" in the way others and to a degree I myself expect it; for the feeling that im never going to get to a place of satisfaction or more...

Doing masculine things because there is no man around to help and support and protect me.

Being masculine because................ I've chosen to hate my femininity.....~~~~ as a coping mechanism?...........

Becaaause I'm scareeeeeeeed people will think I'm insane. My femininity is like a black hole, soo wild and kaleidoscopic......

I overcompensate for the pain of rejection in my childhood by trying to be all things to all people. I overcompensate for the rejection of my femininity by becoming hyper feminine. I overcompensate for feeling and being invisible my whole life by being loud and outspoken.

I overcompensate with finding meaning in almost all things+beings as I used to be someone who didn't pay attention at all to signs and circumstances. This happens at the expense of ease and lightness, everything becomes serious and potentially important.

Feeling broken. I try so hard because the idea that I am broken, that there is something wrong with me no matter what I do, or don't, is extremely painful. I got the message that there was something wrong with me constantly growing up, and I still get that reflection from time to time and I got it stuck in my habitual thinking that I need to be better, different than I am to have a semblance of acceptance, which actually is more like tolerance, not acceptance or inclusion. I am constantly wanting to be seen as good enough, as okay, as at least putting effort towards improving. I really appreciate this space to answer these questions, it's assisting me in gaining a lot of clarity.

Being the baby in the family and the “favorite” and not being able to excel in school and not wanting to be there. A lot was given materialistically, and how I was seen and represent the family was always a theme.  Insecurities about my self worth and being approved of.  Picking an overtly narcissistic partner to have a child with and the fallout, and overcompensating in guilt for what happened with our son, and taking on my own behaviors and patterns to heal while blaming myself for my own codependency and being selfish.  Constantly feeling like I have to fix myself.

Giving up upon trying to have my needs met. Holding myself accountable for things wich are not my responsibility. Instead of actually being empowered and responsible. Im afraid of failure or pain, and have anxiety, so I have these days where I binge watch Teals Videos.
