Remark in Passing

I am a people person. I am a pleaser person. I don't like for anyone not to like or to think bad things about me. Not sure why I'm this way, but I am, always have been. This weekend a remark was made in passing that shook me. Is this how people perceive me? Am I really like that? I've thought about it and thought about it since it was said. In my mind I've had a reason to act the way I do when it came to this, but the more I've thought about it, no I don't. I agreed to be one way and I have not held up my end of the bargain. I'm sure the person didn't mean any harm in the statement, but now it has me wondering, how many people think I'm like that. The more I've thought about it, the answer is probably a lot. I have a huge task ahead of me in changing my way of thinking, and although I want the person to like me and not think this way about me, I'm glad it was said so that I can work on fixing my own issues.

so what exactly was the remark, dear one? that you are a people pleaser? I am one and try hard not to lose myself when trying to make others feel good about themselves. This is not such a bad trait, although after a while, I tend to grow tired of not having positive energy for myself :) Don't beat yourself up. And I am curious to know how the remark was worded to you~
