The Good Opinions of Others.

This is a very good Audiobook. People-pleasing is not good. Living life for others and their good opinions is not living a free life. This is very well narrated and an easy listen. Great book.

Great book, full of positive ideas

This really was a great book, full of positive ideas. It's a pity about the title. Call me old fashioned, but I do not like strong language in the title of a book. This may well put people off, who would otherwise enjoy the book.

your listen-to when you need to power up

This is a nicely narrated self belief manifesto. To live the life your way.
It is quite short but it could be also advantage: you may listen to it many times when you need your assertive powers and confidence to be powered up.

Give this to your people pleasing friends

This book was a breath of fresh air. I didn't realize I was guilty of trying to please everybody and how destructive that impulse can be. The author clearly defines situations when its ok to say no to people. It's not about being rude, just defining your boundaries. The tips are practical and the message is easy to understand. Makes a great "read" while going for a walk. I found it especially helpful to listen to it if somebody just upset me. Great little book.

Quit pleasing people!

I enjoyed this self-help listen.
I think it gives the right confidence to take back the reins to our life.

I like the chapter that says that actually, the only person that we need to care for and listen to is ourselves; we don't have to mind to please other people.

Nice short audiobook!

Stop Giving a Fck What Other People Think

I liked this audiobook because people pleasing is one of the biggest mistake we can make. People don't care about you, they are too worried about their own life and challenges. The only thing we accomplished by people pleasing is getting fake friends that don't like us for who we are and nobody wants that. So I can really recommend listening to this audiobook!

I'm done with people pleasing

I really enjoyed this audio. I learned some valuable information like the root cause of a people-pleasing behavior, and I'm happy to have discovered this. I've learned how to not let people's opinions rule my life either, and this is quite liberating. My goal moving forward is to create healthy, respectful relationships while expressing my needs and feelings without coming off as aggressive, and this book has given me inspiration and clarity for it to happen. I recommend this book to anybody starting their journey into personal development.

Vindicating, Healthy, Crucial

I find myself to be overly accommodating to people in my life. Whether in the work place, or in personal relationships, part of this tendency to defer comes from my sense of empathy. However this tendency to accommodate others either physically or emotionally, is often at the expense of my own emotional or mental health.

Someone recommended this title to me as a way to establish a stronger sense of self worth, and to learn techniques for establishing stronger personal boundaries with individuals in my life. What a great decision this was! F*CK People-Pleasing was was a critical move for me, not only in acquiring techniques for greater personal autonomy and confidence, but in understanding the sources of these tendencies in myself. Since having listened I've gained a number of tools to help stand up for myself in a variety of conditions, and can feel myself becoming more comfortable in taking a stand for my own well-being.

For anyone struggling with people pleasing, giving away personal power/confidence, I would absolutely recommend this title!

People pleasing no more

I found the examples of assertiveness very helpful, as some of them I could use in my life right now. Additionally, I think the examples of the "I" statements were also helpful in driving the idea home that there is more than one way to say something. Diffusing the situation, whether proactively or retroactively, is a useful skill for everyone. I recommend you check out this audiobook!

Really enjoyed this one!

Totally recommend this one, it's like a quick pep talk before the start of your day. I listen to it in the car on the way to work.
I find myself a people pleaser and have realized that I am the one causing myself pain, not others.
Effective tips to say NO was great!
