Former people pleaser here.
I never wanted anyone not to like me.
So I stayed small, didn’t speak my truths and put other’s needs before my own.
I never said I how felt for the fear people wouldn’t like what I had to say.
So I never said it.
For the fear of being disliked.
Things recently changed.
I started using my voice.
I started speaking my truths.
When you put up a boundary and it’s not respected, people will make you feel like you are the evil one.
When you people pleased for so long and put up a boundary, people won’t like you.
When you felt like you needed approval and validation your entire life and you put up a boundary, people will think you are the bad guy.
Boundaries are hard but boundaries will draw the right people closer as they will respect you more and they will draw the wrong people further away. 💕
