People pleasers are liars

Listen on:

It’s natural to want to keep people around you happy. And we’re not here to create a bunch of jerks. But when we try to keep people happy, we often don’t tell them what they need to hear, and it keeps the problem going. When we need other people to feel good to feel good ourselves, it’s a losing battle. Listen in this week as we talk about what to do instead and how to get better at being honest, being okay when others are not okay, and how to like yourself through it. Listen and learn.
