This week I’m thrilled to have Mara Glatzel back on Belonging to celebrate her upcoming book, Needy: How to Advocate for Your Needs and Claim Your Sovereignty.

In this conversation, we discuss how to to connect with our needs, respect our wants, and let go of the fear that having needs makes us undesirable. We also dive deep into attachment styles, parenting, and learning to communicate our needs to our partners and friends.

Listening to this episode will help you get one step closer to acknowledging your own needs. And make sure to stick around to the end for a special reading of a blessing for belonging from Mara’s book, Needy.

Content warning— We discuss postpartum anxiety and rage from 47:30 – 50:30. And there’s a brief mention of suicidal ideation at 48:50.
