People Pleasing Is A Reaction ~ Part 1 - Karen LeslieWed. Jul 12 AT 2:00 pm EST
How do you see people pleasing? Is it a choice, a reaction or something else? Are you even aware of when you are falling into the role of being a "People Pleaser"?
People pleasing (according to psychology) is actually more of a need to belong verses a need to help others. Everyone is taught that it is important to care about others and to be polite; however, that can get out of control and create havoc in your life.
In this episode of Cultivating Kindness With Karen, Karen Leslie Stress Recovery Expert and Coach, will explore the hidden agendas behind people pleasing. Drawing on her personal experience, and research, Karen will outline some of the ways being polite and caring for others can create an unhappy life and perpetuate the desire to belong.
If you know you are a people pleaser, know someone who is, or are just curious, you will want to be a part of this show. Join in the chatroom to be a part of the conversation.

~ More About Cultivating Kindness With Karen ~
Karen Leslie is an Educator and an Expert Healer who has been facilitating energy with others for over 25 years. Her life of depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts has led her on an interesting, and at times, turbulent path to where she is today.
Kindness was definitely missing in Karen’s life. Karen was always kind and compassionate to others, however she was not showing kindness to herself. Today Karen knows that kindness towards others was actually a way of avoiding her own wounds and sadness. These choices created a life of ‘people pleasing’, keeping the peace and avoiding conflict; especially if it involved having to say “No” to someone else.
Karen knows now that everything we do to help ourselves from the neck up will help everything from the neck down. Karen now lives each day with enthusiasm, excitement, an openness to new adventures and a great deal of kindness towards everyone, most especially herself.
