Do you tend to say, "Are you sure?" or to feel guilty after asking someone for a favor or to do something? Yeah, me too. Why? Because as a (recovering) people-pleaser, I have a tendency to agree to things even when I really don't want to.
Throughout our lives, we've been rewarded for the times when we're agreeable and willing to sacrifice our own time for the benefit of others. A hard lesson I had to learn: you can't please everyone, otherwise you are going to disappoint yourself.
In order to ditch the guilt and start trusting when others say "yes", we need to start being honest with our own responses when we truly want to say no. You are not responsible for making sure someone else answers honestly, but you are responsible for being honest yourself.
Listen to this episode for a conversation about why it can feel so hard resisting that automatic reflex, how to start practicing, and how we can join together to support each other to protect your energy. Understanding how to fuel your body in a way that energizes you and helps to feel in control is super important, but you will never feel fully energized if you are continuing to say yes when your body, heart, and mind are asking you to say no. ❤️
