We please people to make them happy, to fit in, or to cover our insecurities. You must stop it. Love yourself the way you are. You are good enough. Don’t crave for love, give yourself love. Because you can’t make people like you. If they don’t like you, there is nothing you can do about it. Forget about their love. Your love for yourself is enough to make you happy for the rest of your life.

No one is perfect. No one is better than you.And you are not better than anyone. That is good enough. Don’t give up your values because you want people to like you. Don’t do it. According to Ryan Holiday, “We can seek progress without being perfectionists and we can be pragmatic without being unprincipled.” In other words, don’t give up your values just because you want to make people happy.

The more you please people, the more you harm yourself. You will never be happy with yourself. To stop people from manipulating you, you must believe in yourself. You must never be afraid to say NO to them. If you want to live your best life, you MUST be in charge of your life. The choice is yours.
