Are you a people pleaser?
Here's a link to an article that lists 52 traits of a people pleaser:

Gosh, I have over half of them! But I'm working on it. And seriously, feeling better already.
It seems awareness is 1/2 the battle. I have noticed that my people pleasing tendencies seem to have worsened as I get older! I needed an intervention and now I am in
self-imposed, self-structured...........

    I think it's a good list because it makes me think about some traits. But this one too is quite exaggerated if you ask me. I mean, who "ALWAYS" avoids conflict? You can be a people pleaser if you avoid it 60 % of the time, in my idea!

    Awareness of anything, gives you the power to change it. I fully believe that! Seems to me that in this world there are "takers" and "givers". You are a giver my friend. That doesn't have to be a bad thing - so long as you don't forget about yourself and your needs along the way. You are a blessing to me! Thank you for being you. You inspire me. . daily. Have a good one!!!

    Yep, I'm a total people pleaser. I think I am learning how to be a bit more assertive.

    I am not a bit sorry that I do not possess many of these traits! emoticon
It's tiring just reading all of the activities one has to do to be a bona fide people pleaser!

    I read the list and came to the conclusion that I am not really a people pleaser; maybe sometimes not as much as I should be. I tend to value my own opinions and make them known. I don't necessarily have a positive self image all the time, but I don't belittle myself either. Overall, I guess I'm glad that I don't fit that profile!
