GETTING RID OF PEOPLE PLEASING SYNDROME

20180620_124133_0001I’m currently obsessing over Fame by Adekunle Gold……

I was recently going through my instagram feed, then I came across this interview with Gabrielle Union by Jada Pinkette Smith where she talked about how much of a people pleaser she used to be, it just reminded me of my old self and how I was always trying to make everyone around me happy not minding if it costs me my own happiness.

After this realization, I just told God to let his will be done in my life.
