I don’t force myself on anybody. I used to be a people pleaser but that came from childhood trauma. It came from a childhood trauma where you’ll be looking for attention as a child and you didn’t get it. When you get older, you start waning people to like you. So even if it’s breaking you, even if you know that this person doesn’t like you and has said shit about you, you think maybe they can change their minds”.

Speaking about how she overcame it, Nancy said she developed self-love and stopped pleasing people.

But learning to love me and being intuitive helped me to heal from being a people pleaser.” she said.
