NO MORE PEOPLE PLEASING, PLEASE!
Are you that person who tries to do what all you can do to please everyone around you? Who places everyone else and their likings, priorities before yours? Do you only do things to which everyone would agree? You try your level best to be there for everyone? You would always think about others, but when it comes to you, you don’t think much about you? If that's you, read this chapter.
Each person seeks different things. If you put yourself in the centre of everyone and do things for them, what will happen when you do one thing for one person, but the other person in the same gang doesn’t like what you are doing? You will get stuck in between, right? The worst thing is, sometimes despite what you do for others, people take you for granted or they can go unsatisfied.
For instance, you do something good for someone in your office and the least you expect from them is for them to be good to you or at least smile at you whenever they see you.
But what if that person, on the contrary, shows your attitude?
Your mood and your work instead of getting uplifted it gets affected.
The thing here is, you expect others to be like you and when they prove you wrong, you get affected by it.
Some people will always love you and be there for you for who you are and what you do for them. Those people are the nicest ones, right? :)
While some people will always try to find fault in you and leave you.
While some won’t even have noticed what you were doing for them all these times because you were doing everything for them without even them asking.
So, they at some point in their lives instead of being grateful, they would just start to take you for granted.
LOSING ONESELF IN THE PROCESS OF PLEASING OTHERS:
When you give others the first priority, it means you are not giving importance to yourself, to your desires and to your thoughts.
