“You are driving yourself batty because of your anxious, over-achieving need to please others. You are miserable. This life is not meant to feel miserable. It is meant to feel delicious.”

That’s New York Times bestselling author Julie Lythcott-Haims, who explains that anxious achievers are often hyper-attuned to other people and how to please them. She tells host Morra Aarons-Mele that many of us need to learn how to tune out that noise and focus on ourselves, our dreams, and our goals.

“This is your one wild and precious life,” she argues in this week’s episode. “To heck with them! What you want is valid and matters.”
