    I have a big problem saying the word no.  And most of the people around me won't take no for an answer.  So it seems like most of the time I'm coersed into saying yes anyway.  I think I have difficulty saying no because I want to seem like a friendly and helpful...

    Give People What They Want and End Up Loosing Out In the End

    I guess I became a people pleaser when I was young. I have realized that no matter how hard i try to please my mom that it won't happen in this life time.  This has carried over to trying to please every body all the time and has left me in a tail spin cause by trying...

    Trying to Stop, Though.

    I did it for my parents for a long time, at the cost of my developing identity and self-respect. Now I just do it out of habit, and from the paralyzing fear that someone might (essentially) reject me if I don't. As much as I did it for parents and other authority figures or...

    I Try To Give People What They Want

    I try to give people what they want  except if it is something I can't afford.   I also sell items people order.  They usually order what they want.

    Well, At Least I Try to

      It's rare for me to actually succeed. But I never show the pain from failing yet again. No, must never show pain. That lesson I learned well. So in a way I give people in my life exactly what they want..... No reasons to ever worry about me. I keep all pain inside, &...

    sometimes - but not usually.  give them what they want and they will always come back.  But then am I really being myself?  I believe there has to be a balance of giving and taking to really get along peacefully in the world.

    Whenever I Can
