In this episode, I will talk about people-pleasing and how it can upset our balance. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t do nice things and please people. This simply means that we just have to be sincere in our intentions and we should be aware of the reasons and beliefs on why we do what we do. We help someone because that is who we truly are. We give out compliments because we wanted to brighten someone’s day. We should avoid doing good deeds as a pre-emptive action into getting something that we want in return.
Join me in this episode for a discussion on how people-pleasing, when misused can be detrimental to our balance. And, when done with the insincere intentions, can conceal our true selves and create a cycle of misunderstanding, confusion, and frustration.
If you’re trying to please everyone, you’re pleasing no one. To put it simply, people-pleasing is just emotional manipulation with the best of intentions.
Saying “no” isn’t always a bad thing. You can be a kind and thoughtful person and still say “no”. Just have to be honest when saying “yes” or “no”. Sincerely saying “no” is a sign of maturity in your relationship.
When saying “no” you don’t owe someone an explanation. Self-honesty is key in knowing who to say yes or no to. In the long run, authenticity will make you happier and benefit you more than trying to please everyone.
