It’s time for another episode of The Baggage Reclaim Sessions.

In episode 60, I cover:

“I should have more self-discipline”: I explain why we need to stop criticising us for having to cut something out in order to avoid temptation and move forward. I talk about food, deleting the likes of Facebook and Instagram, and having to go No Contact. | Link mentioned: It’s Just The One Chocolate Bar. It’s Just The One Values and Boundaries Bust. Or is it?

Why doesn’t our gifting feel so giving?: I talk about overspending, passive-aggressive gifts, gifting even when the person has asked us not to, ill-judged gifts and feeling as if we’re being upstaged by a show-off. | Links mentioned: Episode 15 about giving | Episode 2: What’s the baggage behind it? | Unsent Letter Guide

Intense with the one after you: I explain why we shouldn’t be too quick to assume that our commitment-avoiding ex is committing to the one after us. | Extra links:

Listener Question: Steve wants to know whether he’s right to feel rejected about his girlfriend not sleeping in his arms for the entire night.

What I Learned This Week: When we’ve been rehashing something, it’s good to make a conscious decision to talk about something else.
