Common Objections why people pleasers avoid being empowered

  • Desire to be liked: People pleasers often prioritize being liked over being empowered.
  • They would rather be liked than fight for what they believe in.
  • Difficulty asserting boundaries: People pleasers have difficulty asserting boundaries, which makes it difficult for them to be empowered. They may feel guilty or uncomfortable setting boundaries, which makes it difficult for them to be assertive.
  • Fear of change: People pleasers may fear change and the unknown. They may feel comfortable in their current situation, even if it means not being empowered.
  • Fear of rejection: People pleasers avoid being empowered because they fear rejection. They would rather go with the flow and avoid any potential rejection or conflict.

  • Due to past childhood trauma and upbringing I was a former people pleaser which is an adaptive traumatic response
  • I have since then learned, grown, changed, and overcame such adversities to develop the essential skills needed to empower myself and build healthy relationships within my environments.

"Being part of EmpowerHER will revolutionize the way you see and express yourself. This community has been my canvas, encouraging me to experiment, to explore, and ultimately, to reveal my authentic self in colors and forms that resonate with my spirit. Here, I've learned that self-expression is not just about speaking out; it's about letting your soul speak in the language it knows best."


"Listening to the powerful stories of resilience and strength from the women in EmpowerHER gave me the courage to open up about my own journey. Sharing my story was a leap of faith, but it turned into a pillar of strength for me and, unexpectedly, for others too. This act of vulnerability has taught me that our stories, no matter how imperfect, have the power to heal, inspire, and connect us on a profound level. I've learned that my voice matters and can be a beacon of hope for someone walking a path similar to mine."


"Being a part of EmpowerHER has ignited a strength within me I didn't know I had. Now, when I speak, it's not just words but my truth, loud and clear. I've learned the importance of standing my ground, and I do so unapologetically, for myself and for those who haven't found their voice yet."
