Reflecting on how we can say one thing but really mean another is thought provoking. I break it down into two; when we mean something entirely different and when we talk in a negative fashion rather than face what is really troubling us.
Don’t we admire those who go their own path with confidence and vigour? I do.
Isn’t beauty an asset to be measured not only by the physical but also the intellectual and emotional attributes? I can often hear myself thinking, yes, yes, yes when I read tales of women who have defied the odds, tradition and anything else that stood in their way.
Yet, “people pleasing” can also be a very positive element in our lives. It’s a balance between doing our own thing and not living by other’s opinions and
self-reinforcement of us.
