Are you a people-pleaser? It’s normal, we all do it, and we all know it’s not good for us when performed excessively. It’s easy to get caught up in what others want or expect, which can result in flexing our own dreams and wishes to fit with someone else’s. While this usually comes from good intentions, the outcome is often disappointment and resentment. Why? Because we missed out on doing what would ring true in our own hearts.
In today's guided meditation, we will be reflecting on the teachings of the Stoic philosopher Epictetus, who was once a slave, but later went on to found an important school of philosophy in Greece.
"When someone is properly grounded in life, they shouldn't have to look outside themselves for approval." How does this teaching relate to you?
