Stop People-Pleasing

Let your 'yes' be yes, and your 'no' be no.

It’s natural to want to please other people. And it’s a very Christian thing to lay yourself down for the sake of others. But there’s a fine line between a free Yes and a compulsive Yes.

In this episode, Matt and Erin share what they’ve learned as “recovering people-pleasers.” This will help you better understand Jesus’ words “Let your Yes be Yes and your No be No.”

  1. Jim Hennessey says

    Yes, I have been called a people pleasing, people fixer. You are right on target. And yes, I risked my life everyday as a cop in the South Bronx, but I knew the odds were in my favor. It’s a shame that at least some percentage of people hate you while you are protecting them. Freedom to say no was not an option in the NYPD, except in certain circumstances where people demanded you take action in what was not a police matter. Good Job Matt and Erin
