Do find yourself often minimize your own needs and desires, by saying yes to doing things out of fear of rejection, disappointing or upsetting others? In this week's episode, Bonnie talks about the People Pleaser’s Dilemma and how you can break the habit of people pleasing.

Today, you’ll learn the importance of being in touch with prioritizing what is meaningful and purposeful for you, so you can calm anxiety and lower your stress. When you realize that God wants you to invest your energy in what gives you peace and joy, you will feel re-energized and live each day with more purpose, the way God created you to flourish.
