People Pleasing {OUCH}

When I was growing up I was constantly on the alert so I could get my mom’s approval. If I slammed the door and she was displeased I made a note never to slam the door. If I she was in a good mood with me I studied what I had done to figure out what I had done to make her happy so i could always please her’

Now I understand that her moods had nothing to do with me. However, back then I evolved into a people pleaser and a perfectionist.

After I got into program I began to understand how devastating perfectionism and people pleaslng were to me. That’s because as things were my serenity was totally dependent on other people’s moods.
