Good episode? Give it some love!
Have you ever felt the need to please, placate, or help other people at the expense of your own needs or desires? This pattern is called people-pleasing, and in this episode, I’m going to show you how to stop people-pleasing in your own life.

Sometimes it can feel like you are locked into a battle of either making yourself happy OR making everyone else happy. This is a reality that many empaths and highly sensitive people face on a daily basis.

Because you can feel other people’s emotions and energies so strongly, shielding yourself from their unhappiness, unease, judgment, and misunderstandings through subconscious people-pleasing is a way that your nervous system helps you feel safe. 

So, how can you talk about things or make decisions that could be triggering, upsetting, or insight judgment from other people, without being paralyzed by their discomfort?

Are you ready to learn how to stop people-pleasing?

In this week’s episode, Lola explains exactly what people-pleasing is, why we subconsciously do it,  the “shadow” side of people-pleasing, and how to let go of taking responsibility for other people's feelings. Get ready to take a deep dive into one of your nervous system’s most confusing defense mechanisms!
