I am a people-pleaser. Right down to my core, I aim to make others happy. Not being able to find out how to make someone happy grates at my very soul. Is this sin in my life? I’d venture to say yes. There is certainly an element of idolizing myself, of thinking that I can be the source of someone’s happiness among other things, I’m sure.
Still, I’m hitting the hay tonight knowing that there are a lot of people who are not necessarily pleased with me right now. It’s grating away at me, making me ready to be done with the school year, or at least done with the week. Any advice on how to move away from this way of thinking?
