How to stop people pleasing once and for all.

Lovely, you want to put your best foot forward.

You want to put on a brave face and smile when you feel sad inside. Sometimes you wear a mask that you feel is better to hide yourself from letting people see the real you. It's safer that way, you think to yourself.

If people knew the real you, maybe they wouldn't like you or accept you anymore.

You feel like a fraud.

Remember, the media has told you a story about who you should be and what you should look like. That story is the one you tell yourself. And the story you tell yourself becomes who you are.

What if - just once - you could be the real you?

Today, give yourself permission to remove the mask and be authentic. 

Remember to #bloomlovely.
