Posts to help with boundaries & people-pleasing
Peace at any price can cost you everything. In this video I discuss what peace really means and why it’s important to focus on the right kind of peace.
In this short video I speak to my quote “If you want to help someone, stop taking responsibility for their problems.”
We’re taught at an early age to be responsible, to be kind to others and to avoid becoming selfish. Without these values, our survival as a species would be in question. So how do you know when you’ve crossed the line from caring to people-pleasing?
It seems that some people confuse authenticity with saying or doing whatever they want. This post discusses people pleasing & whether being authentic comes at a price.
Every day we make choices – choices that determine everything from how we spend our time to how we feel about ourselves. Do you often wonder what happened to your day – or your week? Do you look back and realize that you spent it doing what others wanted you to do?
By now we all realize that being a people-pleaser has its downside. Putting other people’s needs before your own can lead to exhaustion, frustration and an unfulfilling life. You can’t say yes to what’s most important to you without saying no to distractions. But, of course, staying too focused on yourself makes for a lonely life. So where do you draw the line? When do you stop trying to please everyone?
