Mezza - Please stop met pleasen
In Mezza; a plea to stop people-pleasing. To stop hiding our authentic selves behind pseudo-generosity or flexibility. And start taking care of our own as well as others' needs. Psychotherapist Emma Reed Turrell wrote the book 'Please Yourself' ('Kies voor jezelf' in Dutch) about it. In which she explains the different ‘types’ of people-pleaser and provides advice on how to better understand – and stop – people-pleasing behavior when it starts to affect your own needs. Loved illustrating the article as a people pleaser in recovery.
