A “people-pleasing” addict
From a young age, Ahdri Kent was forced to acknowledge and dismantle the generational trauma that was people-pleasing. When she was sixteen her father died in an extremely traumatic way; she was able to see how this trauma materialized in her mother.
I’m not happy, even though I am doing all the things I need to
After decades of piping out energy for other people, Ahdri decided to pipe out energy for herself. Treating her people-pleasing personality just like any other behavioral disorder she was able to start healing. Instead of doing “what was supposed to be done,” she started doing things for herself. And soon discovered that was a healthier approach for everyone.
Ahdri says “We often light ourselves on fire for other people but we don’t even know if their cold!”
The Whimsical Rebel
Ahdri’s debut book is a potent blend of self-help, behavioral addiction advocacy and fantastically fucked up humor. It’s wrapped up in an easy-to-read collection of her step-by-step recovery methodology and personal stories of co-dependency.
Dealing With Sexuality
While writing her book Ahdri was able to connect with herself on a personal level. Part of the experience of finding yourself deals with sexuality, and Ahdri was smacked in the face with her own sexuality.
Ahdri had spent so many years When she sat down with her partner of eleven years and came out, it was the bravest thing she has ever done.
