Nollywood actress and media personality, Nancy Isime has opened up on her childhood experiences.
The ‘Nancy Isime show’ host revealed that the trauma she passed through as a child made her a men pleaser.
While speaking in an interview with actress cum host Lilian Afegbai, she revealed that her inability to get the attention she required as a child made her a people pleaser.
For her, while growing up, she wanted people to like her.
However, Nancy Isime had dropped the childish attitude as she has gotten to a point where she doesn’t force herself on anybody or need their validation.
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 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 doesn’t like you and has said shit about you, you think maybe they can change their minds”.
Speaking on how she overcomed it, she alluded self love for helping her out.
“But learning to love myself and being intuitive helped me to heal from being a people pleaser”.
