Have you ever felt afraid to be yourself?
You probably didn’t think of it that way, but you just act a certain way around certain people. You know, because it’s more acceptable. You want to fit in…
Maybe it’s not so much your actions, but it’s in the close you wear, or the words you say. You know you can’t say certain things around certain people.
I’m not referring to being respectful (we should all be respectful), I’m talking about people-pleasing. Sometimes we get wrapped up in it without even knowing we are doing it.Being respectful and being a people-pleaser are two different things… Click To Tweet
And that’s where Gretchen found herself in the story she opened her blog post with last week. I hope you’ll hop over and check it out. It’s definitely worth reading. She talks about how we can break free from people-pleasing and even offers some reflection questions at the end.
Oh, and Gretchen, don’t forget to grab the “I’ve been featured” badge and add it to your post so your readers can celebrate with you.
Now For This Week’s Link Up!
Let’s bless and encourage one another in our walk with the Lord…
Grace & Truth exists to point people to Jesus! We hope this link-up will be a source of encouragement every week. If you’re a blogger, we hope you’ll use this space as a way to meet new friends within the Christian blogging community. If you’re a reader, we hope that you’ll encounter new bloggers that love Jesus as much as you do! Most of all, we hope you’ll meet Jesus here.
Join us each Friday for the Grace & Truth Link-Up!

2.) Leave 1-2 of your most recent Christian Living posts. Please do not link DIY, Crafts, Recipes, etc. Links of this kind will be deleted. We also reserve the right to delete posts that don’t align with the theme or that are deemed by the hostesses to be inappropriate.
