Women are raised to be accommodating and put others first, which leads to self-destructive behaviors like people pleasing, perfectionism and the desire to control. Behaviors that leave us unfulfilled and feeling like sh*t. So, how do we learn to recognize these behaviors and make a different choice in the moment?
