Pleasing somebody else?

Sometimes we're all caught up in the idea of pleasing everybody but in the end, we're the ones who are unhappy. It is not wrong to follow your heart or to defy all the odds. Live your life the way you want it to be, share it to someone you want to spend the rest of your life with because after all, more than anything else, the general rule is PLEASING OUR HEART and NOT FEARING THE SECOND RATE OPINION OF OTHERS or SOMEBODY ELSE. Good day everyone!

I've been living FOR ME for many yrs now..and I could care less if the ppl in my life like it or not....If I'm not doing anything negative or dangerous etc anymore then I dont see what the issue would be...Sadly though, some ppl EXPECT others to live "for them" above anyone else..I know ppl like htat and it just sickens me to no end..

i like your post! :) its sometimes really hard to be yourself, as sometimes one tends to give importance to what others think. but eventually a person would come out of it and be themselves when they cant take that torture anymore and reach their saturation point!! they should have a clear sense of what they are doing and why they're doing, then they wouldn't have this problem at al right!!?

I had a phase of my life where I lived it for everyone else so this discussion definitely hits home to me. This phase was several years for me, which is really sad. It particular, I wanted to please my parents more than I wanted to my happy myself. As crazy as it sounds, this went on for years until it ultimately came down to their happiness or mine in a huge decision I had to make. In the end, I chose to make myself happy. Although they weren't pleased with my decision right away, after all was said and done they came around. Your statements are truth because I've seen it firsthand in my own life. It's better to do things that make yourself happy. Don't live life to please others. You can live your life to help others, though, but there is a fine line between that and being happy.
