LG -

I think you are right in that this pattern of pleasing is difficult to not do with everyone. I'm sure it does drive people crazy at times.

For me, it isn't about "doing" it is more about "being." The difference being I don't think you care what I eat but you care if I'm cranky or sad. I hide the parts of me I think people won't like. My therapist compares it to the chameleon that can "hide" in plain sight.

I guess that is why sometimes I feel more intensely lonely in a crowd. It is exhausting being on for other people all the time.
