From an early age my ambitions were driven by the expectations of others and being the people pleaser that I was, I'd spent the rest of my youth chasing after my mother's dream - becoming successful.
I don't understand the grammatical role of 'that I was' here. Why aren't there any words after that I was? I mean, that I was 'what'? Is this a grammatically right sentence?
Does it mean from an early age she was becoming a people pleaser, which she ALREADY was, and had to spent the rest of her youth chasing her mom's dream?
