EPISODE 74: Overcoming the Disease to Please

People pleasers are not just nice people who go above and beyond trying to make everyone happy. Those who suffer from the “Disease to Please” are people who say “Yes” when they really want to say “No” and as a result, lose sight of what they authentically want.

Join co-coach, Eileen Trujillo, and me as we discuss how the worthiness of a people pleaser hinges on the approval of others which often causes them to sacrifice their own happiness in the process.

Other topics discussed:

  • Identifying what key areas and people in your life, where people pleasing rears its ugly head
  • The value of boundary setting and how this allows you to be the most authentic and genuine version of yourself
  • How prioritizing your own happiness actually leads to more fulfilling personal and professional relationships
  • Actionable steps on how to become more comfortable prioritizing your own emotional needs and wants
  • How letting go of your desire to be liked by everyone frees you up to surround yourself with people who genuinely like you for YOU, and not for what you can do for them

If you’re a recovering perfectionist who strives to win the affection of others by being a martyr, you may want to check out our other podcast episodes on the topics of perfectionism and how this mindset holds you back.
