SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: February 9, 2017

My biggest regret is not learning how to say no to people. I have always been someone who wants to please everyone around them. I have put myself in an unhealthy state both physically and mentally to help and please others.

  1. On a positive note, you realise you ARE a people pleaser. Many of us are. Look around you: there are many who hesitate not a jot to say to you: ‘can’t’ or ‘sorry, would love to, but…’ or, simply, ‘no!’. From my experience, these people value themselves enough to be selfish on occasion and, as a result, are more respected. That’s not to say you don’t/can’t/won’t help others, you just need to find a balance that makes YOU happy. I found my balance in simple, incremental steps (being strong enough to refuse babysitting requests, for instance. Not Earth shattering, but for me it was a start. I learned that you don’t have to offer an excuse for not giving up your time for free, you can simply politely refuse). It can be done! Good luck.
