We didn’t need an excuse to interview our Internet-friend-we’ve-never-actually-met-in-real-life, Caroline Garnet McGraw.

BUT, she did sort of whisper the magic words that made it painstakingly obvious we HAD to talk to her: “I used to be in a cult. And I was good at it.” 👀 Best elevator pitch ever.

Caroline’s first book, You Don’t Owe Anyone: Free Yourself From the Weight of Expectations, is getting published in April, and we got to sit down with her to talk about her journey from INTENSE people-pleaser to free and self-expressed human.

This one goes out to all of you people-pleasers, perfectionists, high achievers and highly sensitives, as well as anyone who struggles to let go of guilt and prioritize your own needs.

We got into…

  1. I started following Caroline because of COF. I definitely identify with the codependent perfectionist good-girl syndrome. I can’t wait to read the book

  2. I pre-ordered the book before the I actually even finished the episode. I’m so glad it is arriving early. Thanks for the introducing me to Caroline.
