On today’s ‘Wednesday Walk’ on a hot sunny San Francisco day, I share about an amazing clearing conversation I had with someone close to me who often says she is going to do something & then doesn’t do it. When we dug deeper into it she had an major A-HA moment that this actually comes from a place of feeling the need to please people. She realized that she says she will do things in timeframes that might not be realistic, thinking that it will make me or others happy if she promises a fast turn-around … but it makes no one happy, including herself, when she doesn’t follow through! I suggested that she pause, breathe & think about if she can fulfill the commitments she makes, before making them. That way she can keep her integrity in tact by keeping her word & truly please herself. Check out my ‘Wednesday Walk’ video for inspiration on examining the tendency to people-please and recognizing how this might show up for you.
I would love to hear from you. Are there things in your life you’ve said you would do, maybe just to please another, and then you don’t do it? How does that impact you & the people in your life? Please leave a comment on the blog so we can all learn from you!
