People-Pleasing Parent

True confession time: I recently realized that people pleasing is not only something that I passed on to my poor children…it is something that actually plays into my parenting.

I fear displeasing even them.

This problem is clutter. I am submitting it to God. The process is brutally hard, and it terrifies me, but I will do it anyway. Here goes…

Lord, I submit my people-pleasing parenting to you. It is wrong. Please forgive me. Please unclutter me. Please strengthen me.

(There.)

This feels like bungee jumping without the cord.
