Are you constantly concerned with what people think about you? Do you always say yes to a request by someone, even if you don't want to do it or have time to do it? Do you often times find yourself alone, and lack support from those around you? Do you frequently agree with others or go along with what they say just so you "fit in"? Or go through great lengths to avoid conflict? If you said yes to more than a few of these questions, then you may be a people pleaser!! There is a fine line between people pleasing and "kindness" and it can oftentimes be confused. Most people pleasers feel that they are being kind by always saying "yes" to someone, but what is the underlying reason you are saying yes to their request? Fear of judgement? Fear of conflict? Fear of them not liking you? If these are the fears you feel when debating on whether or not to say yes or no to someone, then who are you REALLY thinking about?! YOURSELF!! People pleasing to the point of being a doormat, in my opinion, is selfish because YOU are the one who wants to be liked, YOU are the one who doesn't want conflict, YOU are the one who doesn't want to upset anyone, and YOU are the one holding back from expressing who you TRULY are!! So instead of exerting all of your energy into trying to please everyone, what if you used it to serve others by being who you were BORN to be, to share your gifts with the world, to be the person GOD has meant for you to be! Here I give you 10 ways to start saying "YES" to yourself and break the people pleasing patterns!! Please feel free to share this with anyone you feel it would value, and I would LOVE to hear from you, so write me a review and let me know what else you would like to hear about! Much Love!!
