People Pleaser

I am 29 and I can be a bit of people pleaser. I care more about other people's feelings then my own most of the time. Is that something you can break out of? Should I go cold turkey and just not care about anyone else but my son? What do you think? Are you a people pleaser?

Though I think it's good to make others happy, I think firstly we need to care about ourselves and love ourselves. I always tell, we have to take care of ourselves before we can take care and help others. When you feel good, you will be able to help or serve others better. I am just thinking, if you ask this question, you might already sense there's not so right with you keep pleasing others, but perhaps already ignoring your own needs, is it? I have learned many years ago that we just can't please everyone. Whatever you do, you might please someone, but make some other people upset. So, I gave up pleasing everyone, but still try to make others happy as much as possible.

Thank you for commenting!! I know I am a people pleaser. I have been trying to break out of it for a long time. ITs a hard thing to do. I am going to try working on myself alittle better. Worrying about my own needs. Simply just saying no to others when I don't want to do something.
