Today is about people pleasing ...
“If you are busy pleasing everyone, you are not being true to yourself”
– Jocelyn Murray
Being true to ourselves is a challenge which requires a degree of vigilance. It is easy to fall into the trap of people pleasing, sacrificing ourselves and our time, doing things that are not in our best interest.
If, we feel resentful because our efforts to please have not achieved a desired result, we need to question our intentions. We should ask ourselves "What was I hoping to gain?" and "What part of myself have I sacrificed in doing this?"
Wanting happiness for someone else is wonderful. As is, doing things to help others. But, to be true to ourselves, our actions need to be motivated by joyful willingness rather than a feeling of obligation, a way to achieve a particular item, or a need for praise, approval or affection.
Wishing you a day of abundant glory!
