For ex. If you had to make your mom feel like a “good mom” when she made you hot chocolate in bed, you learned that if you receive a gift, in return you have to take care of the giver’s emotional needs.

Sometimes that leads to you not wanting to receive gifts or money at all because the emotional cost is too draining. You’d rather have less money than be emotionally obligated to your boss, your partner or your friends.

This was totally me. In my non profit job I was bending over backwards to please my boss and telling her how amazing she is because that’s what I learned growing up.

The difference is: when you’re a little kid you can’t move out or “trade in” your parents but when you’re an adult you have more options.

For ex. If I stopped people pleasing and found out it was truly a toxic work situation, I could get another healthier job.
