People Pleasing

Stop Being A People Pleaser!

Have people ever told you that one of the reasons they love you so much is because "you put other's needs before your own"? While this can feel nice to hear, it can also mean you have an unhealthy habit of being a people pleaser. Being a people pleaser isn't just being nice, it is always choosing to please others, often at the expense of your own wellbeing. This can quickly lead to burnouts and can even lead to depression if this behavior goes on too long. Luckily, you can avoid this by working on saying no when needed and realizing that it is okay to say no.
