What’s wrong with being a people pleaser? I love treating others as I would like to be treated. But if people pleasing is motivated by fear and/or a need for others to like and validate me, then I am coming from the wrong place. There is nothing wrong with being a people pleaser, but it should be about the joy of giving, not a sacrifice that is motivated by the need to get.

“Teaching is done in many ways, above all by example. Teaching should be healing, because it is the sharing of ideas and the recognition that to share ideas is to strengthen them. I cannot forget my need to teach what I have learned, which arose in me because I learned it. I call upon you to teach what you have learned, because by so doing you can depend on it.” ~ ACIM (5-IV-5)
