being a people pleaser made me the effortless perfect girlfriend, regardless of whether I was dating a forest-dwelling hippy, an athlete, an academic, a drug addict or a hedge fund manager.
The problem with being a people pleaser

Reminds me of that movie, Runaway Bride. How do you like your eggs prepared? ;)

I too, was a relationship chameleon becoming whatever I thought the other person truly wanted and needed me to be. It never led to lasting love or successful long-term relationships though.

What I didn’t understand then but I do understand now, is that it was truly a blessing in disguise that none of those relationships actually worked out. Eventually, I would have ended up resenting the role I had to play and the person I had to play it for, even though I was the one who created those expectations in the first place. Hindsight is 20/20 though, isn’t it?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
