I am a people pleaser.

and i need to stop. i figure it's got to be just as easy as quiting smoking, or going on a non-sugar diet...which basically means i will be like this for the rest of my life.
i've had a few good chats about this with a few close friends. it always ends in tears...and no cure. i've been told to take what other people think as constructive critisim. take it, make myself better, and then throw out the rest. i will never make everyone happy, so in the end (as selfish as it sounds) i've got to make sure that I am happy.

alot easier than it sounds.

until then, you let me know if you need anything.

i am totally the same way. maybe not as much as you, or marissa, but i feel ya. it's true, and hard not to think of it as being 'selfish', but if you aren't happy, you really can't make others happy. you're amazing bethany. a great friend and example to me of many things. i respect you and know i can come to you for anything. PLEASE feel free to do the same here. love you girl!!!

I always think this, if God is happy with WHO you are and WHAT you are doing ... You're good.
