I am a recovering people pleaser and what I’ve discovered is that prioritizing other people’s happiness is a habit that we learn as children.
Time and time again as I talk to parents, they say that they want to parent differently than the way they were raised. They can even identify a moment when they were little and thought, “when I have kids it’s not gonna be like this!”.
This week on the podcast we’ll talk about how being discouraged as children from feeling our feelings contributes to people pleasing as adults. So if your parents ever used the phrase “I’ll give you something to cry about” you’ll definitely want to tune in. Then we’ll talk about how to break that cycle for you AND your teens.
