If you’re reading this post, you may know what it is like to be a people pleaser (join the club!). As a people pleaser, you know that some times we take on too much. As result, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to prove that we’re dependable and reliable. In those times, we have feelings of anxiety because we know what we’ve agreed to something we realistically don’t have time to do. Truthfully, we’re doing a disservice to ourselves and others when we respond this way. It can cause us to be resentful and break down a relationship. Pleasing people also causes us NOT to live in our truth; not being true to ourselves and what we really WANT to do, CAN do, or have TIME to do.
Being sincerely balanced is knowing when to say no, so we’re not stressed out, bogged down, or doing things out of obligation.
This short video from YouTube channel A Little About A Lot, has some helpful tips on how to create boundaries and how to say no, and truly say yes, without people pleasing.
