I like giving people good news and helping them when they’re stuck with something.
The problem is, you can’t please everyone and sometimes being a people pleaser has negative side effects.
When you’re always trying to please you can feel like your just saying yes automatically. Helping your friends starts to feel like a burden. And then you can get resentful, eeek!
Here’s a checklist to help you control your people pleasing ways and take back your time:
1. Remember you don’t have to do it – When someone asks for something, before you say yes, stop and take a moment to think, “Do I actually want to do this?” Don’t say yes to invitations you know you’ll regret later.
