For Highly Sensitive People, this can be a big hurdle. When your purpose revolves around what others want or wish, you are not honoring or respecting yourself. Your spirit wilts under this treatment. Your desires and wishes are equally as important as those of others.
Make self-pleasing your number one priority! Notice how your energy feels when you people-please, verses when you do things to please yourself. Become aware of when you are trying to please others, and ask yourself why? Jot it down on a notepad or on your phone. Who are the people you try to please the most? Paying attention to when you people-please will give you clues on where to focus your energy to bring about a significant change in your life.
“I let go of pleasing others and focus my energy on pleasing my own spirit.”
