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.”
“If you don't have time for yourself, everything you might be doing is a waste of time.”
― Hiral Nagda
“Don’t lose yourself trying to be everything to everyone.” ―
“Don’t lose yourself in the process of caring for others. Don’t overdo it as if you don’t need any care to give to yourself. It’s true, you are special too!”―
“Don't lose yourself trying to hold onto someone who doesn't care about losing you.―
“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, and take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”

You can't please everyone. When you're too focused on living up to other people's standards, you aren't spending enough time raising your own. Some people may whisper, complain and judge.
