August 11, 2023    10:30AM  -  12PM

From persistent people pleasing to habitual defiance, all regularly exhibited reactionary behaviors can be traced back to a worldview that forms in early in life when innate temperaments mix with lived experiences. They say that no one escapes childhood unscathed, and this is never more true than when we consider the damaged personal narratives from which many of us operate!
