People pleasing makes me sick. The more I care, the more I try, the harder it gets for me. I used to even sacrifice my own wellbeing just so others were ok and their needs were met. Friendship used to mean me doing all the work and the other person enjoying the benefit. I never used to dare to ask for things as I didn’t want to seem needy or to jeopardise the friendship. But this is not a good way to be or to live. Also, this sort of self sacrificing behaviour definitely attracts the wrong kind of person. The sort of person who likes to take advantage of people. I had to stop this behaviour as I realised that every time I say yes to somebody else’s needs, I say no to mine. Denying my own needs will not get me anywhere. It gets me sick and yes perhaps it pleases others but those are the wrong sort of people as a real friend would not take advantage of me. Since I changed this mindset a few years ago, a lot of things had shifted. I look after myself much better and putting myself first improved my mental health significantly. #bpd #peoplepleaser #relationships #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #bpd #bpdrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #bpdproblems #recoveryispossible #bpdawareness #friends #friendshipgoals #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mindfulness #psychology #eupd #dbt #cbt #selfcare #selflove
