People pleasing is a diss-ease that impacts the lives of so many people, particularly in my experience those who identify as women. We place the needs of other people – even those we don’t love or even know – way ahead of our own. We are often more worried about what others think of us than we are ourselves. And we give up our power in an attempt to get people to like or approve of us, even though such things are out of our control.  If you recognise yourself in any of those traits or behaviours then my guest today on The Priestess Podcast Amy E.Smith is your woman. She’s here to talk to us about people pleasing, why it’s so detrimental to us as spiritual beings having a lived human experience, and what we can do to turn it around once and for all.
