I have come to the conclusion that I really do struggle with pleasing people.
Practically this resulted in me saying “Yes” to nearly everything because I didn’t want to hurt someone’s feelings or felt like if I said “No” I’d be letting them down.
Of course, this is no way to live and just made matters worse for all parties, especially my family.
But recently, as I’ve begun to focus my attention on only a few things, I’ve found a deeper joy in pleasing the right person: God.
I’m more secure in who I am, how He’s made me to be, and more effective in the things He’s called me to do.
Wow, who would have thought…?
