I have realised I have an insatiable need to please people. Absolutely anybody and everybody... the exceptions being people I hate, of course... But those aren't many.
I just can't seem to be able to say no to anybody, any request, anything at all... I go out of my way so often to please people. I need to stop doing that before people start exploiting me... of course I am assuming nobody is already doing that.
I need to say no to others more often. Nobody says yes to my every request... I shouldn't go on with life trying to please people so that people will do the same for me. This is one scenario where "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" does not apply.
I guess I just need to live my life on my own terms for a while... in every possible sense. I need to pamper myself a bit and indulge in my own cravings and needs.
Let me be the change I expect to see... let me start by saying a big fat YES to myself every now and then.
