Peacekeeper vs People-pleasing

Over the weekend I finally completed my ‘About Me ‘, section on my blogpage. Although I still need to include a photo.

One thing I mention is that I consider myself to be a peacekeeper. Is a peacekeeper the same as a people-pleaser? 

Peacekeeper a person who maintains or restores peace and amity; mediator.

For many years I was guilty of being a people-pleaser.  Saying yes was easier than the possibility of any type of conflict occuring and every now and again I find myself like tonight slipping up and reverting with a yes because it’s always easier to say yes. Right?

So how do we break the cycle and what can we do to change it?
There are so many quizzes and articles about people-pleasers. 
I try and have one line to allow me time to process and weigh up my choices which is, ” let me think about it and get back to you “.

Take a look at Debbie Hamptons post about her experiences as a people-pleaser ( below)

What is your line or strategy for making sure you don’t say yes to everyone & everything?

Enjoy the moments
