Ep 224 – Get Out of the Drama Triangle

This week we’re doing something a little different. Instead of answering questions, we’re following up! Awhile back, a listener asked a question about negotiating salary during the pandemic. We gave her some advice, and this week she followed up to let us know how things went!

Also a few weeks back, Tiffany shared her story about learning what the drama triangle is. She talked about learning how to set boundaries and say no. A listener heard that story and wrote in to talk about her situation and how it helped. Check out the link below for more info on what the drama triangle is…
