Do you suffer from the disease to please?

Just yesterday, my client described a situation where she was asked to do something she was not comfortable doing.

She tried to find a way that would allow her to satisfy the request and be true to herself at the same time, but she couldn’t. She didn’t want to hurt the requester’s feelings. She was stuck.

I said to her: “Every time we do something to please others that is not in alignment with our own truth, we chip away a piece of our true self. How much of your true self do you want to keep chipping away?”

Sometimes its easier to just say “yes” to another person’s request. And then we’re left with the struggle of compromising our truth in the process.

Don’t chip away at your true self… because eventually there will be nothing left.

What do you do to overcome the disease to please?
