The life of a non-people pleaser

Hi Brooke.

Since I’ve been working on my “people pleasing”, I’ve noticed that I tend to be very neutral with people at work. I’m talking just in regular conversations even.

I almost feel “mean” in a weird way, even though I know I’m being appropriate. It just feels weird because I’m not my usual bubbly self. The old me would constantly be like:

“Oh I love your hair!”
“Oh you look so cute today!”
“OMG where did you get your shoes??”

And I’ve pretty much ditched this woman. Lol.

It’s not that my heart has turned mean and I hate them, it’s just that I don’t feel the need to spend my energy that way.
Is this normal?

I feel like the new me has become more true myself in many ways. Man it just goes to show how much energy I would invest just to get people to like me.

Is this me getting to know the real me?

Thanks so much
This work is so fascinating to me.
