People-Pleasing

I don’t care what others think, you say. I am not an approval-addict. I don’t sacrifice myself to please others.

Okay. I’ll buy that for a minute.

Now watch your life. Watch you, interacting with others. Watch you making choices and decisions today. Then, take a tally. 

1. How many times did you not speak your opinion or your truth because you were afraid it wouldn’t be accepted?

2. How many times did you agree {by not disagreeing} with someone who said something that didn’t match your own life experience?

3.  How many times did you look around to see if other people were watching you? And how many times did you allow it to change your behavior?

4. How many times did you wait for someone’s reaction to you to dictate how you continued?
