People Pleasing

As a recovering people pleaser myself, I know first-hand what it’s like to struggle with being honest because you want to be liked and you hate to hurt or disappoint others. You fear losing relationships and it’s hard to tolerate the guilt, anxiety, and restlessness you experience when saying how you really feel. But, like me, you will discover the freedom, lightness, liberation, and relief that comes when you finally stop worrying about what others think. It literally opens up a whole new world for you and I want to help you achieve this!

Have you ever wondered:

  • How to stop being a people pleaser?
  • What is the root cause of people pleasing?
  • What trauma causes someone to be a people pleaser?
  • Why do I have difficulty saying, “no”?

If you find yourself often worrying about what others think, find it difficult to say no, or withhold thoughts, feelings, and opinions so others will like you and/or to avoid conflicts, you’re not alone. While these behaviors may seem to help in relationships or at work, they are actually very damaging.

If these are your normal patterns, you may have already begun to experience anxiety, depression, stomach upset, frequent headaches, difficulty sleeping, or even knots and tightness in your stomach, neck, and shoulders. You may even find yourself feeling burned out and always doing for others at the expense of not doing anything for yourself. It may have also become apparent that you tend to give more than you get in return in most relationships.

People pleasing and difficulty saying, “no” happens to women and men alike. If you struggle with being a people pleaser, I will help you identify unhealthy patterns, the fears behind them, and ways to change these patterns to help you become your authentic self and begin to live life to the fullest.

Finding your inner voice is both scary and exhilarating. We can set healthy boundaries and appropriately place limits on the access certain people have in our lives.
