Pride vs People Pleasing

| 1 Comment

I read an article recently (I can’t find it again so I can’t link it. When I do find it again I will edit this post).  Anyway…..

The article called ‘people pleasing’ a form of ‘pride’.

This caught me off guard. I never thought myself prideful. To me being prideful meant creating a ‘look at me’ attitude.  But people pleasing? That is definitely me. I have always tried to make everyone happy, to the expense of my own happiness.

Now I have to consider one is the same as the other. It got me thinking.

1 Thessalonians 4:1 instructs us to live to ‘please God’.  Galatians 1:10 asks “am I trying to please God, or man?”  I am now asking myself this very question.

I think it is time to re-evaluate my thinking. What are your thoughts? Is pleasing others a prideful thing?
