  • People pleasing is a trauma response and it gets in the way of you leading and living with integrity. Here are some signs you may be doing it to:

    • You're quick to agree or at least pretend to agree with things (even when you really don't).
    • You feel uncomfortable at the thought that anyone could be mad at you (just the thought of it makes you want to vomit).
    • You have a really hard time telling others no.
    • You're constantly worrying about what others may think of you
