How Childhood Trauma Made Me A People Pleaser – Nancy Isime
Nollywood actress and media personality, Nancy Isime, has opened up on how her childhood trauma turned her into a people pleaser.
Nancy Isime during a recent interview with fellow actress, Lilian Afegbai, disclosed that she didn’t get the attention she required as a child.
So when she grew, she started wanting people to like her.
However, the 30-year-old said that she had gotten to a point in her life when she no longer forced herself on anybody.
She said, “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 does not like you and has said sh*t about you, you think maybe they can change that mind.”
She further revealed that self-love helped her to stop becoming a people pleaser.
“But learning to love me and being intuitive helped me to heal from being a people pleaser,” the star actress said.
