Most likely we all experienced this to a certain extent, living towards other’s expectations.
But does living towards other’s expectations or satisfying others makes You happy? No, it doesn’t.
It doesn’t make you happy, as you can’t live your True Self when you always try to satisfy others.
Actually it gives you inner stress and frustration, even though you might sometimes think it doesn’t. As you might not always be aware of it. It only comes to the surface now and then, when you try to think or analize why you feel this way.
The only way to Heal your Self is to choose for your Self, to choose for You, and what You want, and How you want things in your life.
Otherwise basically other people are controlling Your life. And you don’t have to allow that, you Should not allow that.
People Pleasing will never give You any satisfaction or the True Happiness you want in life. People Pleasing is exhausting! It exhausts your Soul as you give, and give and give. Your Soul gets drained, and then you start to feel it in your Physical as well.
If you recognise this, then start to choose for You. As you know perfectly well what is right for you, and what You want. You don’t need other people to tell you that.
Start to Heal your Self, choose for You and make You priority in Your life!
