I always worried about what people thought.
I don't care anymore, I am going to be happy.
Like me for me or don't like me at all.....

I never really saw them as opposing ideas. ((people pleasing vs. being happy.))
I have people pleasing tendencies.... but they in no way make me unhappy. I have the ability to say no when Im asked to do something I can not manage or do not want to do. but saying yes often DOES please me.
Perhaps it isnt people pleasing that is the issue but an issue of boundaries, the self confidence to say no, or the fear of rejection if you say no.
