Be a Recovering People Pleaser

Be a Recovering People Pleaser is an original, trademarked digital art piece and writing by authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

She was a recovering people pleaser who still had to remind herself that saying yes to everyone, all the time, was the same as saying no to herself, most of the time. But she knew happiness was a practice. So she practiced. ~ Queenisms™

Hello, our names are Kathy and Cindy and we’re recovering people pleasers. Please step forward and introduce yourselves if you are, too.

Let’s face it. Who doesn’t want everyone to like them? But being the kind of people other’s like and being the kind of person who will become anything to be liked are two very different animals. Bend over backwards and drop everything to help a friend? Yes. Do it every day with no reciprocal action back from that friend? No. Deny your own needs, social, emotional or physical, to take care of the needs of others without gaining anything in return? Please, no. People don’t like you more because you can’t say no. People like you more because you are honest with them about who you are. Pretending to be all things to all people is dishonest. Be honest.
