The People Pleaser
Why do women have the need,
Always to please and be liked in every deed.
This aim to please is an obsession, a want,
To sacrifice time and labour at any cost.
And it is not the answer,
Said sages old and new,
Relinquish this need and be true to you.
Self is important,
Self respect too.
In the name of Love,
How can anyone shout at you.
Can you not see ,
Being true to yourself
Is the reason to be.
When you are honest to yourself
And love yourself true,
You will be frank and honest
And good to others too
Do not do for others
What they don’t ask you to do,
And by the same token
Be good to yourself too.
Say no to disrespect
Put up a fight,
If you don’t care for yourself
Who else will understand your plight,
No-one will be there for you
If you don’t love yourself true
Always pleasing others
Whatever happened to you.
Love yourself first
And then you will fly high.
Hey, when will this caterpillar become a butterfly.
About Sarita Mathur
For Sarita, life is like the V for Victory. It starts on the upper left corner and then from that high it plunges lower and lower , before once again going upwards. Life is taking responsibility for your actions and never being a victim.
However, this is a process and takes time. One goes through different emotions like guilt, anger and resentment but eventually the overriding emotion is the love , peace and happiness which comes with it.
Like the proverbial caterpillar which became a butterfly, Sarita became a visualization and motivational expert ,teaching emotional intelligence and Reiki(hands on energy healing)after her son became asthmatic.
Quiet contemplation helped her to find answers to her questions .When you pray , God
listens ,but when you are still and calm your mind, then God Answers.
