This quote speaks to my spirit.
I was a people pleaser in my professional and personal life. I'm not sure when I turned the table, but I know it was not soon enough. I can recall always wanting to feel like I belonged.
I know some of it was due to my insecurities.
It did nothing to boost my self-esteem; it did the opposite. For example, it can lead to toxic relationships in your life.
I am glad. I finally learned to control my life and not allow others to direct my path. I am in a better place and no longer trying to be a people pleaser. I have learned to take my experiences and elevate myself. Each experience can be turned into a lesson. Lessons turned into positive affirmations. Now am free to make good and bad decisions all on my own. (smile) I love feeling free and at peace.
