#60 ADHD & People-pleasing

Have you ever called yourself a people-pleaser? 

I’m Xena & I am a recovering people-pleaser.

I cared so much about what other people thought of me & would prioritise the needs & desires of my friends, family or colleagues, above my own. 

And by doing this I was telling myself that my needs & what I wanted weren’t as important... Further adding to my insecurities & lack of self-worth. 

Overtime I became a chameleon - I didn’t know who I was or what I really liked because I was always going along with everyone else.

People pleasing is a pattern of thinking & doing things that prioritise what other people think over what we think - Sacrificing pleasing yourself in order to please others. 

In this episode you'll learn: 

  • Why ADHDers people please

  • How this pattern of behaviour impacts our ADHD symptoms

  • How we've got the idea of "people pleasing" all wrong

  • Where people pleasing comes from in our brain & how to change it
