Are you a People Pleaser?

by Mike Corthell

“You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all  of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.”  
 - John Lydgate

The best and most popular people have people that just don't like them. Given that we are all different, it is literally impossible for anyone to be loved and appreciated by every person.

If you really think that you can make everyone like you, you will be in for a big surprise - it just ain't happenin'. However if you are always kind and considerate to others, they may not be fond of you, but it will be darn near impossible for them to hate you.

You can bond friendships by being a person of integrity, one who is always honest, straightforward - someone with high moral and ethical standards. When you do this, you may not attract them outright, the ones who do not share your values, but you will be respected.

But, in the end, please yourself, your self-respect always what is most important.
