This is good. I struggled with people pleasing for along time.

I was always trying to fit in, which only made me stand out more. It was an unproductivity cycle.

Now I've generally embraced doing things my own way. But there's still part of me that wants others to walk the journey beside me.

I look forward to future entries in this series!

Love. We should always remember that in the depths of Britain's darkest hour in 1940, it was "troublesome young men" who helped bring Winston Churchill to power. https://amzn.to/3wfyrf6

Jump that fence! Break that law (err metaphorically speaking of course). Looking forward to this because people pleasing has gotten me stuck before in shitty relationships.
