People Pleasing

For the past couple of months, I have worked on letting go of expectations, fear, judgements, old beliefs and relationships that no longer serve me. I also worked on clearing my space and my mind of old paradigms, thoughts and stuff. I know something has shifted and that this is all working, as my life has a lighter more peaceful experience to it and is drama free!
All this work has helped me figure out who I am, what I want (and don’t want), where I want to go and how I want to show up in this amazing world. I have realized that for a long time, I have done things and acted a certain way to please other people. I allowed other people’s stories and dramas to dictate my life and how I showed up in it. I now see many time where patterns, knee-jerk reactions and ignoring gut instincts happened and caused me personal distress. I would put on the appropriate mask and act a particular way to not make other people feel uncomfortable at the expense of my own feelings and opinions. I was not the authentic me and that really bothers me. Not cool!
This summer, I am making the conscious and sometimes challenging choice to not people please. It is way harder than I thought as I have already had opportunity to practice this. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that I am no longer going to support and be there for people. I couldn’t stop that even if I tried; it’s wired in my DNA to be there for others. What I am saying is that I am only going to show up and be there for people when I know I can be the 100%, authentic me and if that bothers people, I have to let that go (and maybe even them). I can’t be everything to everybody and I have learned, that no matter how hard I try, I can’t please everybody. I will be going to bed each night proud of what I accomplished that day and how I showed up to serve. That feels good just typing it out and now you are all my witness to this agreement with self.

How are you showing up in your life? Shoot me a message or email; I would love to hear from you!
Love & Light
Michelle
