“Yeah, you can crash at my place.”
“I can babysit, no problem.”
“I can lend you some money.”
Do these sound familiar? These are things a people pleaser might say….at their own expense. People pleasers take on too much and have a hard time saying “no”. Their desire to please others and be seen as important and helpful can lead to overwhelm and resentment.
In this episode, I talk about why people have a have time saying No and some ways to stop being a pushover.
