Stop People Pleasing: How to Start Saying No, Set Healthy Boundaries, and Express Yourself
Do you say yes to people so often, you’ve forgotten how it feels to say no?
You’re not alone.
Many people spend years putting aside their own wants and needs in order to please the people in their life and avoid conflict. Although there will always be situations where diplomacy is important, you cannot define your life through other people.
There’s a fine line between being considerate of others, and compromising your individuality, and you can slip into living as a people-pleaser without even realizing it.
Maybe you’ve been going through the routines of life feeling that you must keep quiet, and take responsibility for the feelings of others.
Or, maybe you think it’s more important to avoid “rocking the boat” than it is to be your most authentic self.
While these habits might seem to dominate everything you do, there are actionable steps you can take to create a new world–one where you are open and confident in what you say and do.
Just like the relationships you have with others, everyone’s experiences with people-pleasing are unique. However, this individuality often stems from common roots that are keeping you trapped in the box of others’ expectations.
