People Pleaser

It is human nature to want to fit-in, to belong, to be part of the ‘in’ crowd. A lot of you would accept (at least to yourself) that you are people pleasers. I, amongst many others that I know, do not spend time on pleasing people because 1. I am okay with being disliked, 2. People have bizarre […]
