19). Don’t Be a Victim of the People Pleasing Quadrant By : Rhiannon Rose
People pleasing can be a defeating habit in a person’s life, simply because the act itself takes your focus off what you CAN control, and puts your focus on to what you CAN’T control, which is somebody else’s happiness and peace of mind. Here is a perfect example to illustrate my point:
