Claudius Claudianus

Do you mold yourself to fit someone else’s idea of what and who you should be? Is it your responsibility to make everything right for everyone? Are you tired yet?

People pleasing is not about nice people going too far attempting to please others. It is a debilitating psychological problem with far-reaching, serious consequences. The disease to please is a compulsive, even addictive, behavior pattern. People-pleasers become deeply attached to seeing themselves as nice people. At the core of their niceness is a deep fear of negative emotions.

Were you born a people pleaser? Is “responsibility” your middle name? Are you constantly over committed and spread yourself too thin? EFT can help. EFT which stands for Emotional Freedom Technique is a process that can change the beliefs that lead to being a people pleaser. The process is painless, simple, and quick.
