There are so many Rhymes & Rhythms to
understanding Peace and the Pursuit of it.
Before I jump into the discussion about people pleasing, I want to explain the concept of Acknowledgement to
strengthen your Spiritual Wellness.
Increase your Acknowledgement of what is around you in order to build trust, knowledge and foresight to manage your personal struggles.
There will be times when you do not understand why “a certain thing” happened in your life, and you will not know if it happened to you or for you.
There will also be times when you cannot seem to shake the residual effects of “that certain thing” BUT
There are special promptings and messages that show up as direction for your journey.
Biblical Scripture is my personal compass because the content found within it has helped me to elevate out of various dark places in my life.
You can utilize whatever word inspires you to take action, you just need discernment to notice the direction that is found within the text.
I’ve used the word direction repeatedly because the word that inspires you needs to have a layout of forward progression.
Take a look at the diagram above.
The Energy Enhancer/ (Scripture) is: Genesis 50:20-21
The direction found within is: “Don’t Be Afraid.”
The knowledge gained is: God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives
The Trust Factor is: I will provide for you and your children
The Personal Struggle Statement is: You intended to harm me
Acknowledgement of all the factors contained in the scripture allow you to freely move in Peace. You are essentially giving a head nod to the fact that the opposition had it out for you, they tried everything in their power to trap you, but the intention for your life is greater than any plan they could think of or imagine SO THEREFORE God’s word over your life cancels out their plan.
You will find your blessing (Peace) on the other side of your personal struggle.
Face whatever you need to face and deal with whatever needs to be dealt with. By doing so you remove its power over your life.
You were designed to be a creator, an innovator, a mountain mover and an overcomer.
It’s time to live!
Now, a quick word about being a people pleaser or as I sometimes refer to them as “a performer.”
Are you the type of person who feels like you always have to be doing something to gain attention or support from others
Do you often feel overlooked or isolated if you are not helping someone by providing a solution to their problems
Do you neglect your self-care needs by putting the needs of others before your own
If any of these people pleasing/ performer traits sounds familiar to how you move in this world, it’s time to have a long talk with yourself and make different choices.
Neglecting your needs to appease others is a quick way to achieve mental, physical and emotional exhaustion.
When we fail to establish boundaries with others and we willingly perform in order to gain their acceptance, we are merely acting, and just like in the entertainment industry, we are not showing up authentically. You are uniquely and wonderfully made. Acknowledge that and walk in the acceptance that your needs matter too.
I am sharing 3 tips to help you put down the script and stop performing:
Realize that your needs are important
Develop an Action Plan to prioritize what you need
Ask yourself this question each day: “Did I choose me today?”
