63+ Stop losing yourself to please everyone quotes.





We are sometimes the greatest threat to ourselves. Many times we focus on all the external factors that have been causing us to lose focus on ourselves, without turning the spotlight on ourselves. We are guilty as charged, for not loving ourselves wholeheartedly. For always placing ourselves on the backburner. For suppressing our happiness, dignity, and peace of mind, so we can fit into places and spaces that aren't accommodative to our emotional, spiritual, and physical health.


They say, sometimes you've got to lose yourself to find yourself. Below I'll share some answers to questions many of you have been asking.


What does it mean when you are losing yourself? You're living a life that isn't yours. More than likely, you're trying hard to fit into spaces and places where you KNOW you don't belong.


How do I stop trying to please everyone? Do what makes you happy. Create healthy boundaries for yourself and others. Stop worrying about what others think about you. You have no control over other people's opinions. You can't control how they feel about you.


Why do I try hard to please everyone? You likely have low self-esteem, and you depend on other people's validation. Maybe you're afraid of hearing them say something bad about you. So, you do everything in your power to walk a straight line for them. 


How do I stop pleasing and start living? Do your self-discovery. Spend more of your time on things that will elevate and empower you. Let go of the things that are outside of your control. Focus your energy on things that will build you up and help you grow.


 Why is being a people pleaser bad for you and how do you stop? Often we get so scared about not wanting to disappoint the same people who couldn't care less about whether we're dead or alive. The same persons whose feelings we've placed on a pedestal keep trampling on ours.  Have you been wondering why you're so unhappy? Why you're not at peace? Maybe, you have been pretending to be who you're not all your life.  You can only be yourself, whether the world approves it or not. Stop losing yourself to please everyone else!


“From all I learned about life, you can’t lose yourself in others to discover yourself. You will get lost forever.”
― Chinonye J. Chidolue


“You are the only one capable of loving you the way you deserve to be loved. The only hero that will save you is you, you are everything that you need, If you would only take the time to invest in getting to know yourself, not through outside lenses, but by finding your quiet place within and learning the language of your soul.”
― Micheline Jean Loui


“Don’t ruin your life over somebody else’s foolishness. If they want to leave, let them leave! Manipulating, begging, or coercing someone to stay with you is an insult to SELF. Have confidence in yourself! Know your worth! Take a stand for YOU. You deserve to be loved, respected, and appreciated by someone who’s genuinely in love with you. It may hurt to let go, but trying to force someone to stay with you is more damaging than you realize. It’s VERY unhealthy. Set Yourself Free! Be a Priority to Yourself!”

― Stalina Goodwin

And if your heart is worn all over you, then so be it, but you can't pull it out of you and put it in places, or put it in people's hands. Because you are like this wild and quiet and laughing thing and people are like things that stand there and don't understand what's going on; so when you put your heart into things like that, you're going to feel either stupid, or very hurt, or both. And it's not people's fault that they are just standing there. I mean, you're the different one; they're not different; they're all the same.”
― C. JoyBell C.

If someone sees you as something worth staying with— maybe you'll stay with yourself, too.”
