There was a time in my life I enjoyed pleasing others. I was the people pleaser who hardly said NO to anybody. I wanted people to like me, and to be a genuine friend to them. I always said what you wanted to hear. I was never the honest friend, I wanted you to like me. Through the years Life taught me so much about people, and the power we had to control many things in our life. I was never a negative person I desired to be good to others. One day I realized I did not have to be friends with toxic people who overwhelmed and drained me. I could say NO to them because I was not entitle to do anything for them. I was not a jerk about it, it just took me time to realize my worth in life. I started Loving myself more, I took care of myself, I enjoyed being with myself. I said YES to myself. Life will hit you hard sometimes, but as long as you have yourself there for encouragement, and motivation nothing will ever stop you.
