Stop Being a PEOPLE PLEASER, Start Being Authentically You (Here's How)

Welcome back to the Create Your Happy blog! This week on the blog and podcast, I’m sharing about a topic that hits close to home for many of us – people pleasing. I’m Christy Holt, your one and only Happiness Hussy, and I’m here to guide you through the messy yet beautiful adventure of embracing your authentic self.


The Trap of People Pleasing

People pleasing is more than just being nice; it’s a cycle of seeking external validation and acceptance that leaves you feeling drained and unfulfilled. It often stems from childhood experiences and societal conditioning, where being the ‘good girl’ or ‘good boy’ meant putting others’ needs ahead of our own. But at what cost?


The Real Cost of People Pleasing

When we constantly contort ourselves to please others, we sacrifice our own happiness. We end up feeling burnt out, unhappy, and lonely. It’s a never-ending cycle where our desire to be loved, accepted, and belong only leads to disappointment and resentment.


The Turning Point: Embracing Authenticity

Here’s the truth – you can’t please everyone, and that’s perfectly okay. It’s crucial to please yourself first. By aligning with your true self, you attract the right people who love and accept you for who you are. This shift from pleasing others to pleasing yourself is the essence of living authentically.


The Journey to Self Discovery

The path to overcoming people pleasing starts with awareness. Ask yourself, “Is this what I really want to do?” before saying yes to anything. Learn to respond with intention rather than reacting out of habit or the desire to please.


Tools for Transformation

To help you on this journey, I’ve created two powerful resources:

  • People Pleasers Path to Freedom: This free ebook and masterclass are designed to show you how to break free from people pleasing patterns, prioritize your needs, and embrace self love.

The Promise of Authentic Living
