Let’s face it: there’s nothing easy about starting over again. Whether you’re settling in a new city, entering another relationship, or back on the job market, hitting the reset button can often feel like you’ve taken two steps forward and one step back.
As a former people pleaser, I spent many years making (or should I say trying to make) my bosses and teams happy. But after a while, I realized that nothing good comes from repeatedly sacrificing myself for what someone else wants or needs. If anything, it’s the very thing that keeps me and everyone else from moving forward.
