Do you love pleasing other people to gain their approval? Have you been neglecting your own needs and happiness to please others?
Being too agreeable is not a good idea. There are several potential issues with this approach. First, people might start to disrespect you because they’ll assume you don’t have an opinion of your own. Secondly, there may be times when you and the other person don’t see eye to eye, but you’re forced to give up your point of view to appease them.
An attitude of pushing yourself aside for the sake of others often attracts users, who tend to be lazy and abusive partners, co-workers, and friends.
Some people may never explicitly ask for help, but their emotional and physical needs are just as important. They often go out of their way for their loved ones but also need other people’s attention. But because they never voice these feelings, other people may not realize that something is wrong or offer to help.
It’s not always easy to share your genuine opinion about things in life because it could make you seem rude. Sometimes we don’t want to see others get hurt, angry, disappointed or upset with us. However, as you chart your path in life, you are likely to disappoint some people.
Do you find it difficult to disagree with people or express your opinion when something doesn’t align with theirs? If so, you’re not alone. Many people are suspicious of those who agree with everything and never voice their opinions because they feel people pleasers aren’t genuine and can’t be figured out.
People pleasers are so focused on making others happy that they forget to care for themselves.
People pleasers always do what they think is best for the relationships. But in the end, they often end up hurt.
People pleasers often experience resentment because they feel like others don’t care about them as much as they care.
