Sometimes,

it’s hard to just pause and admit that life was never about pleasing others. It’s about doing what we want to do, as an individual, and make people happy because we ourselves are. We please others because we’d feel insecure without doing so.

humm....bener banget...kenapa ya,orang2 selalu kepengen/berharap kita akan melakukan yang mereka inginkan,tanpa mereka tau,bahwa kita kepaksa ngelakuin hal itu, karena takut di cap 'alien',karena berbeda dengan orang2 lain...i hate those people!!

This really speaks to me. Trying to please other, and succeeding, has and still does dominate my life. Everything I do seems to be to please others and seem more successful in other people's eyes. Whether it be my grades or my friends or anything I do its always to seem "cooler" or "smarter" in front of other people.

i definitely agree with you :-) i think sometimes we spend too much time wanting others to be happy. we forget about our own happiness - thanks for this reminded, Di

devishanty said...

true. I'm such a pleaser, always try to please everyone and fix everything and feel bad when someone don't like me for silly reason. And it took me long time until I finally realize I cannot please everyone.

There's an anonymous quote I like : "there’s a point in life when you get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix everything, but it’s not giving up. it’s realizing that you don’t need certain people and their crap"

:D
