No More People Pleasing: An Update
Monday, September 30, 2013
This used to be me. My last boss used to tell me each time I had a review that my area of growth was to stop people pleasing. He told me that 3 years in a row because I just couldn't give it up.
I never thought of it this way but I can see how it was true for me. It feels good to do something well, & like I said, I was one heck of a people pleaser. Then, when I finally reached that desperation point, I knew something had to change.
"I'm in charge." It's a message I've embraced over the past month or so & it's been empowering. I'm loving my decisions & since the ones I'm making don't directly impact people (e.g. going on a shopping spree & spending all of mine & DH's savings), I don't care what others think.
I'm doing what's best for me & it feels flippin' fantastic.
