Is the Need to Please Killing Your Marriage?
If you live in fear of hurting your partner’s feelings, your marriage is being run by feelings—and not yours.

But that is absolutely untrue. Psychotherapist and author Sean Grover reveals just how harmful this “people pleasing” behavior is and, more importantly, how you can stop it.
