People pleasers feel comfortable as by-standers  and allow other’s to decide, then map out their lives.   Resigned to existing  instead of living , people pleasers use justification as a powerful coping tool.  Finding a million reasons not to stand up for authentic beliefs and remaining silent seems easier Laundry listing reasons not to succeed:  simpler.    Avoiding confrontation may ensure tranquility but propels us into doormat status;  doomed to exist instead of live.

We have a choice. But every choice has a price.   There’s  no guarantee what will manifest if we choose using our voice, and live authentically.  The only guarantee comes with making excuses:  and for me, that price is too high.
