Who or what most drives your actions? How much of your calendar is filled with tasks you knew you didn’t have time or energy for, but that you accepted out of fear. Maybe you were afraid you would weaken a relationship, lose someone’s admiration or respect, or make someone upset and forfeit a future opportunity? If you struggle with an unhealthy desire to please others, be encouraged. God wants to help you break free from unhealthy people-pleasing and enable you to experience the fullness of life He has planned for you.
