If you find yourself people-pleasing for love, attention or fear of confrontation, then this is for you!
Do you make small compromises with the people you love so that they will like or love you more?
There are two ways to compromise:
One has attached resentments, the other doesn’t.
I’ll give you one guess which method of compromise works better for the relationships in your life.
In this episode of The Overwhelmed Brain podcast, I answer several questions ranging from overcoming jealousy, people that impose their values on you, what affects your self-worth and self-esteem, getting over insecurities about body comments, letting go of intrusive, distressing thoughts, expressing yourself and more!
It’s the variety episode on emotional intelligence. I hope you get a lot of value from it.
How many decisions do you make in your life that are actually based on what you want instead of how someone else will respond?
Sometimes it takes a swift kick in the emotional behind to get moving on your decisions so that you can get out of the emotional rut of trying to please others while losing yourself.
Hurtful people do a really good job of causing us to feel bad about ourselves.
Not only that, we end up repeating what they said or did to us in our mind over and over again. The emotional trauma can last for months or years.
In this episode I help transform the hurtful messages from others into empowering declarations that help us move on see them for who they really are.
