This was a hard rabbit trail to go down. I’m a people pleaser and generally I say that as a humble brag as in “I just want everyone to be happy.” It’s really not that at all though. Digging further into people pleasing I discovered that it’s something that we do to manipulate a situation for a desired outcome. For instance, at a subconscious level I find stress in conflict so I people please as a way to manipulate a given situation so that conflict doesn’t exist. This can include being someone else, hiding information about yourself, or just straight up lying. UGH!
There was a lot discussed in this episode that is very enlightening ESPECIALLY if you’re going through some kind of break in a relationship. The conversation that Adam and Blake have is transparent and really centered on Jesus. Check it out!
P.S. Initially I drew Adam with the chicken but I wasn’t sure if it muted the message so I removed it. But I kept a version because I like it so much. He mentioned the chicken so I thought it was fair game. 😅
