An End: To People Pleasing Codependency

April 2, 2020

In high school, I tried way too hard to be a people pleaser at first; mostly by letting bullies get away with it. However it wasn’t until the premiere of Xena: Warrior Princess I really stopped letting people including my parents kick me around. I started watching Xena, which taught me how to protect myself from bullies, and taught me about what real friendship is supposed to be. This is because I was so nice to people who didn’t deserve it, but in my adult life, I’m able to give people shit. Why? Because I’ve come to realize I’m kind, and do not need to be rude to people on any level. Nor do I deserve what I get which is often not kindness.
