People pleasing. Some of us do it to be liked, to get along to go along or because we feel obligated. The problem with placing ourselves in this position is not just it being the opposite of genuine giving; it also makes us feel disconnected from ourselves. We are trying to control. Believing we can control how others perceive us, and creating an image (true or not) that we feel is acceptable. So, we place ourselves in a prison of limitation, by living into this 'image' and not being true to ourselves. Not only is people-pleasing a form of lying, it doesn't actually work. All that effort for no pay off....frustration, resentment and non-fulfillment. If we really saw ourselves through the eyes of others, we would have a mixed bag...and then what would we do? Be a chameleon? Or turn inward and go with who we really are and what we want to do? Join me to find out!
