It’s too much effort making everyone like you. And what’s worse, it’s addictive.

You want to please everyone, make everyone feel you are nice and listen to everyone. This chronic niceness, will, however, take a toll on you. Before that happens, take a few steps back and review what you might be doing wrong.

Here are a few reasons you should not put yourself through this gruelling, unfruitful task and learn to assert yourself better.

1. It only exhausts you and makes you feel less like yourself.

 

2. The pain of being ignored and disliked despite your best efforts is just not worth it.

 

3. Being disliked sometimes means that you’re on the right path.

 

4. Criticism only makes you better and stronger.

 

5. It takes up too much mind space that should’ve been invested somewhere more fruitful.

 

6. Pretending to be someone else only takes you so far.

 

7. You keep learning about yourself by not caring what people think of you.

 

8. Standing out is always better than blending in and your differences make you stand out.

 

9. Listening to other’s needs, you ignore the voice of your soul.

 

10. Your personality isn’t worth losing at the expense of pleasing people.

 

11. The fear of being disliked eats you away from the inside, corroding your identity.

 

12. In the process of trying to make everyone like you, you become more dependent on other people than yourself.

 

13. Taking the decision to make it your life’s mission to be liked by everyone, you’re stripping yourself of the right to decide anything for yourself for the rest of your life.

 

14. You lose the ability to say no even if you want to.

 

15. Ignoring your own physical and mental needs may seem like a sacrifice, but really isn’t.

 

16. Your self-worth doesn’t and shouldn’t depend on how much you do for other people.

 

17. By making yourself go through this, you are actually emotionally abusing yourself.

 

18. Before being the right person for someone else, you should be the right person for yourself.

 

19. It’s okay to be alone sometimes. It makes you realize how much you can achieve on your own.

 

20. The people who like the real you will like you anyway without making you work too hard.

 

You are your own, not someone else’s. Realize that.
