Stop trying to please the unpleasable

I hear a lot of people refer to “they” when they’re talking about a problem they’re facing. “They will judge me, they always criticize me, they won’t understand”… I want you to catch yourself when you’re saying this. 

Who is “they?” 

I can tell you, it’s not everyone. It’s likely one person. 

So this episode is a bit of a loving bitchslap from your girl Erika to shake you out of that thinking, help you identify what the real problem is and decide on the action you’re going to take. 

It’s one person. Maybe you just need to have a conversation.
