“For all the times I rush around…trying to fix and influence the people and circumstances around me, I simultaneously feel resentful that I am the one to manage it all. Why doesn’t anyone else fix this? Why do I have to be the one?“You feel lonely, unimportant, and not-as-good-as, while at the same time you experience feelings of deep resentment toward those who always turn to you. You have trained people to think you have no needs, but you are secretly angry with them for believing you.”

(I say “guessing” because I’ve so clearly not achieved it!)
- Do you find resentment and bitterness showing up unexpectedly in your life? In what situations?
- Do you consider yourself a people-pleaser? Under what circumstances?
- How would your life be different if you shifted from people-pleasing to God-pleasing?
- Anything else on your heart!
