I am so, so sorry you didn’t have that kind of support during your formative and educational years. It is so shredding to be given the message that you aren’t capable, or that you don’t deserve compassion and accommodation when things are a challenge for you. You are a person of value. Your value is innate, and is not tied to your productivity or output or how much help you provide vs receive. But I know it’s hard as hell to unlearn those messages once they’re in your brain. I know I still struggle with it. Thank you for your message.
