Do you often find yourself trying to please everyone to keep the peace? Does conflict – or even the idea of conflict or disagreement – send you into a tailspin? Do you rely on others’ praise and approval to feel ok about yourself?
If so, you might be stuck in a pattern of people pleasing and approval addiction. In this episode, I talk about where these patterns and behaviors often originate and how early childhood conditioning can set you up to people please as an adult. I also discuss the Fawn Response, the automatic response to trauma beyond fight, flight, or freeze. Finally, I share some suggestions for starting to move beyond these deeply engrained patterns, one step at a time.
