      Great tips! Love the idea of asking yourself “Would I want to do this right now?”. Definitely making a mental note! Thanks for opening up and sharing!

    This post speaks to me so much! I’ve been feeling super overwhelmed trying to do what I want and I’ve realized it’s because I’ve been saying yes to a lot of things I DON’T want.

    It’s hard to find the right balance but it’s super important.

    What a fantastic post. I’m a compulsive sorry-er as well. I agree that it loses its meaning if you use it too much. I need to do the same as you!!
    Thanks for sharing. xx

    This is something that I feel like I’ve been pushed down under by, all my life. I might even do a post on it sometime in the future. I felt like I was living to impress other people, and to show THEM who I was… But I didn’t even know who I WAS. And I still don’t, haha! At the beginning of the new school year, I used to give it a fresh start to please other people, but this year, I plan on pleasing myself and making the absolute fricken most of everything. Thank you, Amanda, for inspiring me :) xx

    Using sorry all the time makes moments when we are actually sorry seem just so much less… meaningful, I guess.

    I love love this post and I can relate with completely. I’ve gotten better but sometimes I still suffer from wanting everyone to like me and I find it hard to say no because I want to be nice everyone.

    Thanks for this article! It is great advice. I’ve annoyed myself on how many times I’ve said “I’m sorry” at work for no reason.

    I’m that kind of person, always considering what the others might think, always wanting to please. I should definitely follow your tips, and particularly setting priorities. I really should put myself before others from time to time.

    Thanks for the tips!

    This is so true and good read! With becoming more busy, I realized that life (and happiness) is a question of choice and priorities. Saying no can sometimes make you feel much more releived ;)

    Hey, Chelsea. Interesting and insightful article. should taking people’s advice every time they give it to you at they own will be regarded as “people pleasing”? Because it appears that it ends up shaping you as a person and resulting in a lack of confidence, even in making the most simple life choices. I wrote about this here
