Don’t Put Yourself First
While many parents encourage their children to put themselves first at times and advise them to be their own best friend, this girl was raised to do the exact opposite. Her parents wanted her to be a total people pleaser and ensure everyone else around her was happy before she took care of herself.
The truth is, it’s impossible to make everyone around you happy. If this girl was influenced by her parents beliefs, then she will never be happy. She may also feel like a failure when everyone around her isn’t happy. This could lead to severe mental health and self esteem issues.
