Have you ever wondered why you behave the way you do? Gary Lawrence says he thinks it has to do with the patterns of rejection we navigated in childhood. We all experience rejection, but we all survive that rejection differently. Dr. Gary believes that he has found some helpful tools that can help us break free of the toxic patterns we may be repeating.

In today’s episode, Heather and Gary discuss how we can identify, isolate, and eliminate the root cause of most of our problems with rejection.

Heather also talks to creators about how to navigate the reality of not being cited for your work.
