When we are living to please others

“Stress, anxiety and depression are caused when we are living to please others.” – Paulo Coelho

      1. When I was much younger I would never say Boobto a goise, as they say. It is incredible what authorty can do to you – making you think you do not have the right to be yourself. But as you live and grow, you change, hopefully. For some it is quite hard. I hope that everyone reading your post takes its message in. Life is short! Much love to you for today popsicle xd

  1. I don’t think that’s being selfish, I think it’s being the best you can be and that will spill over to others because you will be happy. We have been taught to think of others which is a way of making ourselves weak and powerless…unhappy and unfulfilled.
