My not enough button got pushed today
when not one, but two people
pointed out how I had disappointed them.
You are not doing enough, they said.
Put me first.
Do what I want you to do.
When do I start putting myself first and
doing what I want to do?
I think I have had enough.
Good for you, Madeline, to find the grace to escape from the trap of people pleasing.
Thank you. People pleasing is a trap for me.
Hoping you have a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year, and a safe and healthy holiday season. Take care! I enjoy your writing xx
Thanks you, Ms. Liz. I hope your Christmas is blessed with peace and deep joy–and here’s hoping for a safer, happier New Year for all of us. Thanks for reading and commenting.
