My name is Courtney. I just wanted to let you know, you've made a difference in my life. My life has been a roller coaster. I was a single mom at the age of just 16. I was married by 21. Divorced by 24. I didn't have ANY confidence in myself at that point in my life. One day I was searching podcasts and I feel like God led me to yours. When I say your podcast has CHANGED my life, I truly mean it. It's been really hard to date someone after being cheated on the whole time in my marriage. I had a lot of trust issues and just insecurities. Your podcast has helped me so much more than I could ever thank you for. God bless.      YOUTUBE, COME BE FRIENDS   Hang out with me on YouTube at Recent videos released include: How to Use Radical Gratitude to Alleviate Anxiety Reduce Your Unhappiness at Work Create an Effective Journaling Habit Believing that You Actually Can How to Detox Your Mind Strengthening Your Self-Esteem Break Up with People Pleasing   THANK YOU: PATRONS Just some special love and deep gratitude your way for how you support the show.

Consider becoming a patron. Just go to   WHAT IS PEOPLE PLEASING AND ARE YOU ONE? People pleasing goes beyond simple kindness. It's based off a low opinion of yourself.  It's a need for others to like you. It's hard for you to say no.You over-apologize, for everything.You're quick to agree and agreeability is a value. You struggle with authenticity. You're an over-giver.You don’t have any free time - because you give all of yours away.    WHY IS PEOPLE PLEASING TOXIC? Because it's rooted in caring too much what people think. It's a belief system that thinks - if I can just make people happy, then I will be happy because I will belong, I will be important and I will be enough. It makes our happiness contingent on someone else's happiness. We become victims to other people's whims and decisions.  This is why it is important to stop being a people pleaser today.
