We all want to be liked, valued, and appreciated. Most people dislike saying no. They are afraid others might get angry or disappointed. But there is a point in there, a fine line that gets crossed, when we make others needs and wants more important than our own. When this happens, we lose ourselves. And that's a painful place to get stuck in it.
Chronic people pleasing can cause further disconnection from ourselves, anger, internal conflict, and hostility towards others. .
When you ignore your feelings or risk not being completely honest because you are more concerned about someone else's needs, you are denying a part of you.
Let go of people pleasing. Stop hiding the real you. Practice saying no and asserting yourself with someone you trust and feel safe with. Share your opinion about something simple. Choose where you want to dine for dinner. Asserting yourself in small ways will inch you closer to a more confident you! 💗💗💗
