Diving into a discussion about our #peoplepleasing tendencies, we touch on this trauma based coping mechanism, commonly used to fill a deeper “void” within. Barry provides an excellent list of self agreements you can use to help heal your people pleasing tendencies. Janie also covers the trauma response that is rarely spoken about.
Episode 4 – Who is your Puppet Master?
In this Episode, we discuss the concept of the puppet master, and the #codependent #narcissist dynamic. We cover red flags to be aware of and share our thoughts on why the famous line “You complete me,” from the movie #JerryMaguire, should have never been romanticized!
Episode 5 – Is ONE the loneliest number, really?
In the final Episode of this series, we discuss the discomforts of being alone, and how it ties to our culture’s warped view on singleness. We also cover the vital tool for breaking codependency cycles, and the true meaning of LOVE. “We THINK love is outside of ourselves….master falling in love with who you are, and loneliness goes away.”
