Are you a people pleaser? Do you care too much about what other people think of you? WHY??
Try to let go of that mentality. It will cause you nothing but stress and anguish. You can never please everybody. You have to do what makes you happy, what floats your boat, what brings a smile to your face, what gives you JOY! And those things may not bring the same joy to someone else. Therefore that person might find fault in what it is you’re doing. They may cast judgement on you because your goals, values, ideals don’t align with theirs. You know what I have to say to them? TOUGH.
And if you’re the person that spreads yourself too thin because you are always saying YES to please others – here’s your new favorite response: “Thanks for thinking about me, I’ll check my schedule and get back to you”. You then find the reason why you don’t have time, let them know, move on and kick your heels up as you smile and walk away!
