    It doesn't matter how close I am too you (just

    met or best friend) if we are bored when hanging out, I feel like you will never want to hang out with me again. Like it's my job to entertain you.

    It's Exhausting!

    Realistically, I know that I can't please my whole family.  No matter what decision I make, I always seem to **** someone off!  Since I know that pleasing them all is impossible, why do I feel so frustrated and helpless when someone is upset?  It makes me want to...

    How I Do Things

    What I do to myself is try to please others. It's what has gotten me in trouble. And it's made me hate myself because I screw up things that are good in my life. I don't know why but that's how I handle things. And I want to make sure everyone is happy before I'm happy. And then...

    When there's an awkward party

    and no ones talking, I feel like it's my fault and have to make sure everyone's having fun or I would feel guilty. I also hate that I give so much effort to please people and make sure people like me but they don't do the same and give back that same effort. I feel like there's...

    No Pleasing Some People

    No matter what you do some people will just never be happy with what you have done for them. "You can please some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time."

    Trying to Please Everyone

    I've always put others before me I guess I just wanted to feel wanted, needed and accepted. I would do things for people who would't even return the favor. I've had people use my kindness as my weakness. I know how to say no but I needed to be needed. I 'd watch people kids for...
