Do you try to please everyone around you? Or, do you focus more on just doping what is right and making yourself happy? I am not one who tries to please evry one around me. I try to keep my client happy because without them, my business wuld not be going anywhere, I try to keep my hubby happy because I love him and want him to be happy, I try to keep my kids happy, but who in the owrld can really do that

I don't even try to please people. Same things you do with your loved-ones, that's acceptable you want to please them because you love them. But as for other people, I couldn't care less. I mean why bother pleasing others when you yourself is not pleased with them lol. As long as you don't harm others, then that's enough to please them already.

Well maybe I am not that pleaser myself. I am not the type of person that will cheer up another person if I see him/her down. But what I usually do is come and sit and lets talk kind of person. If someone is not interested in me I usually let them go and move on with my life. I do not go efforts of pleasing them at all.

Depends, sometimes I really don't care about what others are thinking. lol. Other times I'll definitely try to please everyone or some of the people around me, because obviously I want them around me. :) Usually though it doesn't seem so hard to make everyone comfortable around me. I think everyone is usually worried at some point about how others view them and if they really want to be around the other person. People usually either choose one, do I care about what this person thinks about me? Or would I rather just slum this moment through and not care about their opinion. If I have to be around someone that I don't want to be around though, I'll usually try to make them feel comfortable anyway, though. Because if they're not comfortable, odds are I'm not either. But if I'm around someone that I don't want to be with, then I'll probably just leave. Might as well. Who would want to hang out with someone who is feeling forced to pretend they want to hang out with you? So I would say that if I have to be around someone that I don't like, I'll try my best to be a people pleaser. If I'm around someone that I do like, then yeah I'll be cool around them. If I don't want to be around the person and don't have to, then I'll probably just leave and do something else. lol. XD It might sound rude, but hopefully a lot of people say something like that too. lol. bb.

I'm not the man who is ready to please everyone around. I'm not good at this.On the other hand, I try my best to avoid hurting others. Life is tough and we have to make fun of it. I don't want to take any more burden on me. But I will try my best to make my families, my friends and my relatives happy. I am strong with you on that although we make efforts to keep the people we love happy, they are not always happy with me. Don't pretend to please everyone around you. Just be yourself, that's enough.
