People pleasing, what lengths will you go to?

I had a horrible flashback (more on that in the future) when I read this comment left on a forum:

“I wish I was more of a people-pleaser. Then people would have liked me more.”

No, you don’t.

There’s a fine line between being a people-pleaser and being likeable. I know because my toe’s been on that line.

Don’t ever compromise yourself just to be accepted. Being the black sheep of the family or a fish out of water is not such a bad thing.

You’ll see, muchacho.

    Well said! I used to be a people pleaser and I still believe in helping others were possible, but nowadays I think i do better and have my own standards and will only do what I am okay with. It’s difficult sometimes, especially when it can lead to conflict. But I believe it’s good to stand up for what you believe in and to say no when you don’t want to do something. People might like you more if you’re a people pleaser, but they don’t know the real you and you won’t like yourself
