People pleasing happens when you continually put others before yourself. While this may seem like a positive quality, you may end up placing unhealthy amounts of pressure and stress on yourself. This can be exacerbated when people pleasing takes on an addictive or compulsive undercurrent. At its core, this typically stems from a lack of confidence.
Through understanding that you have a choice, identifying your priorities, and learning to say no with conviction, we can work towards healthier attitudes in your personal and professional life.
