People pleasing does work. I know you don’t hear that often but giving is how we do relationships. When you take a good look at what you’re receiving, is it balanced to what you are giving? And are you giving from a place of protecting yourself?
These are some great questions to ask yourself to create self-awareness so you can change a dynamic that may not be working for you.
A clue that you are struggling with pleasing people is… Can you ask for what you want and need?
