People Pleasing Is Not What God Wants for You

Living for the approval of others is never a worthy goal. Let’s face it; people pleasing is a moving target. We’ve all heard, “You can’t please all the people all the time,” so if you’re a people pleaser, you will exhaust yourself trying to measure up to everyone else’s standard for success.

When you bow to the standard of others, you’ll also lose peace of mind. Because you will constantly compare yourself to how others are doing or change your goals based on the comments of others. 

So, what can you do? For me, freedom from people-pleasing came in a number of ways. First and foremost was when I surrendered my life to Jesus as my Lord and Savior because the Spirit of God gave me new life in Christ.
