330: Will you ever stop people pleasing?

We’re going back to a topic from one of our most popular episodes. People pleasing. A people pleaser works very hard to make other people happy. Often putting other people’s needs above their own.  

Are you a people pleaser?

Also, listen to Episode 216: how to stop being a people pleaser.

This is what we spoke about

  • A people pleaser often says yes to something and suddenly feels resentment and anger, thoughts might pop up like ‘why did I say yes? I don’t even want to do this!’
  • The first step of unlearning any habit is awareness. So, it’s acknowledging that you are a people pleaser and that you want to let go of some aspects of this behaviour
  • Say yes when you mean yes and no when you mean no. When someone asks you to do something, check in with yourself first.
  • Setting your boundaries is really empowering. Although it can feel awkward to say no, you’ll be proud of yourself for doing it.
  • As a people pleaser, you might have old grudges that you’ve kept. 

Go inwards and welcome awareness, what you can learn from others and most importantly, what you can learn from yourself?
