People Please No More
“If you want to live an authentic, meaningful life, you need to master the art of disappointing and upsetting others, hurting feelings, and living with the reality that some people just won’t like you. It may not be easy, but it’s essential if you want your life to reflect your deepest desires, values, and needs.” ~ Cheryl Richardson
Some inspirational quotes are not inspirational the first time you read them. This, for me, is one of them. It’s downright painful. Any fellow people pleasers out there? Today, you must start anew with pleasing only one people. That people is you. When you stand for you – centered, calm, and kind – you can say, do, and become things you never thought possible. Use your mindful practice today to set a boundary. Say “no” or say “yes,” and while you may not make everyone happy, you make the most important one happy – yourself.
