Episode 165: 5 Practical Tips To Stop Being A People Pleaser

When we’re people pleasing, we’re lying. It’s hard to hear – but it’s true! While people pleasing can feel like a selfless and noble act of love, it’s really just a strategy we use to avoid discomfort and rejection. Which means that the reason we people please has nothing to do with the people we’re pleasing and everything to do with us!

In this episode, I’m sharing 5 practical tips to stop being a people pleaser. I’m still on this journey myself but I hope this advice will help you begin to strengthen your integrity with yourself and those around you. Even just a small change in your behaviour can make a huge difference!

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why people pleasing is a selfish behaviour
  • The real reason that we people please
  • Why it’s so important to see what people pleasing is costing you
  • How to say no without making excuses
  • Why it’s so uncomfortable to stop people pleasing
  • What other people will do when you stop people pleasing and why that’s ok
  • The power of self-compassion and why it’s needed throughout this process
