trauma, relationships, psychology
I've misplaced the toot that introduced me to this blog post about "people-pleasing" tendencies and the "fawn" response to trauma. but it's really really good: https://letsqueerthingsup.com/2019/06/01/fawning-trauma-response/
I'd heard of this phenomenon before, but never described in a way that made it so clear how it relates to my own life and relationships.
I've been thinking about it all day, as a series of lightbulbs went on re: my past, my loves, my family, my friends. wow.
