How to stop people pleasing and become the real you

Are you a people pleaser? I had this conversation with a client recently. She didn’t think she was until we discussed what people pleasing actually looks like.

As we went through the list of people pleasing behaviors, her eyes got wider and her mouth dropped open. “Wow,” she said. “I thought I was just being nice!”

And that’s what most people pleasers think. I should know because I’m a recovering people pleaser myself.
