Stop People Pleasing

It's time to own our abnormality! In today's show, I want to fight the oft-repeated phrase I just want to be normal. Whether they are talking about their eating, or their personality, I believe that there is no normal. Let's explore this.

This is a replay of episode 22 of my other podcast, The Eating Coach. Although the focus is is on food, I believe there is a lot of useful information here.

Being out of control can prompt a desire to be "normal". However, it has such wildly differing definitions throughout history and across the globe today. This word is nothing but the agreed upon beliefs and traditions of the people around us. 

It really is an expression of a different need that all empaths will relate to. In this episode, I divide this concept into two separate parts. I explain what these are, as well as:

*The phrase that means two completely different things, depending on how you say it

*The new normal you really do not want to be a part of

*How normal equals mediocrity
