Why We Become People Pleasers

As we continue “uncaping” and “unmasking” Olivia Pope & the people pleaser in her, we discover that people pleasers often start out as PARENT PLEASER

If  children spend the majority of their childhood/teen years conforming to the needs, desires, and expectations of their parents, and are constantly seeking approval and acceptance, they’ll eventually start believing that the only way they’ll receive love and nurturing is when they’re [unconsciously] taking on the role of people pleaser. 

In today’s episode we dissect  the behaviors of people pleasers and the childhood experiences that thrust them into the the life a people pleaser.

Check it out and when you’re finished let’s continue conversation in the Shades of Strong Facebook Community HERE.
