Emancipate Your Mind: 081: Safe and Sane Relationships with Emotionally Immature People

Do you have someone in your life that you love dearly that tends to drive you crazy with their lack of self awareness and emotional intelligence, their inability to empathize, or their inability to resolve or even approach conflict?

You’re likely dealing with an emotionally immature person.

In this episode, we explore why many of us who come from high demand religion struggle with emotional maturity and how you can create safer, more sane space for yourself with people you love who perhaps were never taught the skills to recognize, work through, and communicate their own emotions and needs making it difficult for them to relate to others in healthy ways.
