Please help! I don’t know how to stop people pleasing my partner. We’ve been together for 2 years (we don’t live together) and it’s only recently that I’ve properly realised that he calls the shots, makes the majority of decisions, directs our conversations, decides when/if we have sex etc. I thought I was just being an easy-going nice partner that didn’t give him any hassle but now I realise that I’m just people pleasing out of a fear of criticism and rejection.
This is great that I’ve recognised it but I don’t even realise when I’m doing it and I don’t know how to stop.
