Guidance tells us things don’t happen TO you, things happen FOR you.
I’m getting that lesson. I’m a pleaser, right? Especially want approval from males, bosses and professor types. I’m sad today because my new boss just got on a plane for Orlando and left me here. He wooed me when he started 6 months ago. I got energized and enthused about working together. He seemed to have trust and respect for me. Then, poof, disappeared. This is a pattern but that’s another story.
So, this is happening FOR me and not TO me. This is healing me, curing me of being a Pleaser. It’s no fun anymore to please him.
What’s the deeper lesson? Or, what’s next? I’d love to hear from you folks who are ex-people pleasers. What happens next?
