“When you find yourself in the midst of approval seeking, take a breath and remember that your people-pleasing habits 

 

 

arise from a deep intention to help yourself be happy and free. 

 

 

Also let go of any blame or self-judgment for these habitual behaviors and ways of thinking. 

 

 

This can help you heal the wound that led to the difficulty in the first place

 

 

Psychologist Tara Brach, who teaches mindfulness in Washington, DC, says that forgiving yourself and letting go of shame about your coping strategies is essential in healing the core wounds from which the coping strategies arose (2011).”
