Barb Knows Best

Mar 29, 2022

Just as Mary Oliver said, we have one wild and precious life. How much of that life do we spend agonizing over pleasing others, and oftentimes, at the expense of our own happiness and joy?

In this week’s episode, Barb and Michelle tackle the habit of people pleasing, why so many of us fall into this habit, and how we can start to lovingly change gears. Barb and Michelle will give tips and tools on how you can care for yourself, while caring for the people in your life. 

Follow us @MichelleMaros and @Peaceful_Barb and share your experiences with us @BarbKnowsBestPod or at


Key Points:

  • Be aware of where people pleasing is showing up in your life and your relationships.
  • Get in touch with your feelings. 
  • Understand your motive. 
  • Communicate your needs clearly and kindly.
  • Accept the outcome and release the judgment of that person or whatever happens. Accept your truth.
