People Pleaser

People Pleaser.

That is me for sure.
I have been having bad anxiety this past week because I am to much of a people pleaser.
I constantly am trying to make everyone happy and not myself.

I want to please my boss, my coworkers, my family, my friends, strangers, etc.
It gets overwhelming.

I hate this feeling. I would rather make a friend happy then disappoint them.
I feel like whatever I do for certain friends or family isn't good enough.
I will put myself in a stressful situation just trying to please them.
Sometimes it involves 2 people and then I try to please them both. If I don't I will let one down.

For instance, last night a coworker and a good friend was being 'forced' for the 6am-10am shift. (We both had worked 6pm-6am)
She wanted me to take the shift, however I was tired and already worked 14hrs of overtime this week.
I could tell she was mad at me that I didn't take it because she was really short with me.
I told her if there was anything she needed tonight for work when we came in to let me know and I would get it for her. She just said 'yup'.

So the whole way home I cried because I just kept thinking she was mad at me and I should have just taken the shift for her.

Blah. I hate this. I hate being put in the middle of family members, friends, co workers. Can't we all just get along?
Why must you put me in the awkward position?
Doesn't anyone want to please me? lol.

If a family member is having a get together or birthday party of some sort and I can't go (previous plans, money wise, working, etc.)
I tell myself, 'great Katie, they are mad at you, they hate you now'.

Eek, how does one calm themselves down and not take on the problems of family and friends?
Sorry for the debbie downer post.
I will leave you with this hilarious SNL Digital Short from last week.
I actually downloaded it from iTunes. (Obsessed with iTunes)

Love for these 2 First Ladies

If you may or may not know from previous posts I have a love of history.
It would make sense that I like learning about the Presidents and their wives.

There are 2 'first ladies' that I love learning about.

Jackie Kennedy

When I went to Boston MA a few years ago I actually saw this outfit that Jackie Kennedy is wearing above.
She was a true fashion icon and did great things!

I own quite a few books about Jackie Kennedy.

The other first lady that I love is

Michelle Obama

Did any of you watch the inauguration?
She was beautiful in everything she wore.
I adore her fashion.
She looks so classy and modern.
Very appropriate for a first lady!

I want her boots, coat and gloves.
I'm loving the bangs as well!

She can do no wrong in fashion!
Here are some of my other favorites!


Pure Grace.
Pure Beauty.
