To cut a long story short I have lived all my life to please other people, to the point I didnít actually know how to be happy without making others happy first. I started trying to stand up for myself but when I didnít get a good reaction I very quickly resorted back to people pleasing. Everything got too much for earlier this year and I realised I needed to do something for myself and stop expecting other people to change.

I'm largely in the same boat, to the extent that I had a heart attack mainly due to stress at the beginning of the year. I'm trying to sort the whole boundaries issue right now. (And it's beating my butt some days).
