The Love Fix

Aug 6, 2021

Who doesn’t love strawberries in summertime? Carla and Sherry start off the show sharing their strong feelings over this fruit, and then encourage listeners to check out their new waitlist-only Love Fix Coaching Program.  Then they answer the Love Fix question- is there any way for an anxious-avoidant attachment style listener to become secure? Sherry shares an exercise anyone can do to focus deeply on their circle of love and practice receiving love.  Then, they welcome Amy Fiedler, Certified Trauma Support Specialist, Holistic Life Coach and Reiki Master Practitioner.  Amy shares insights into the trauma and childhood experiences that are often behind people pleasing, how to avoid getting into an unhealthy relationship with- or as- a people pleaser, and how to share all of yourself so that someone can fall in love with all of you. 


What You’ll Hear In This Episode:


  • Codependency starts in childhood, but that doesn’t mean it has to ruin your adult life and relationships. 
  • People pleasing habits form when we try to overcome someone’s rejection by gaining their approval. 
  • Knowing that you are enough is key to not worrying about pleasing others. 
  • Do you know how to say no? That is the number one symptom of people pleasing. 
  • Amy outlines the first step to un-doing the people pleasing- make your voice the loudest voice in your head.
  • Stress and relationship wounds have to be healed before we can own our sense of self. 
  • Inner child work can get difficult, but you don’t have to do the work alone.

  • What is the biggest hurdle in a relationship with a people pleaser?
  • You are allowed to have a difference of opinion from your partner. 
  • Other people’s insecurities are their issue, not yours.  Own every part of your badass self!
  • Playing small will only attract people who aren’t right for you. 
  • Be yourself so that someone can fall in love with all of you.
