I’m Curbing My People-Pleasing Habit

It’s harming my mental health big-time.

I am a people-pleaser to the core. I love helping people.

But, the older and busier I get, the greater pressure I feel to spend time with others, talk on the phone often, and do other things I don’t want to out of guilt.
