Angie discusses her upbringing and how her desire to people please and receive rewards led to her seeing relationships as transactional. She explains how gifts were a big part of her childhood sexual abuse and how her father and mother's love languages were also gift-giving. This lack of emotional connection made it difficult for her to be vulnerable in relationships and caused her to feel like everyone wanted something from her. She talks about how this mindset affected her marriage but she and her husband are working through it. Angie encourages others who feel trapped in a transactional mindset to do some work and cultivate deeper relationships.
