Glad to know I’m not the only one:
Yeah, the people-pleaser in me wants to give, give, give all the time in an attempt to make others happy, and I fail to realize the burden I place on the other person to guess what I may want. I naively believe that constantly giving in to others is a positive thing. I also naively believe that expressing my preference is selfish and bad. So now it’s time to abandon the black and white thinking and start swimming in the gray area…joy.
Diane, let’s learn to navigate the gray together. :)
