One day, on a remote island, Katrina Bos found herself faced with having to literally eat fish eyeballs. When she told her friends later about it, some asked her why she did it… Why didn’t she just say “no”?
Well, because she had never considered that she could say “no”. She was a longtime people-pleaser who almost never considered her own desires, preferences or comfort if it meant possibly disappointing someone else. She had been metaphorically “eating the eyeballs” for her whole life.
Does this sound like you? Are you the kind of person who tends to sacrifice your own happiness for the sake of others? Are you too polite? Is it hard to be honest if it means disappointing someone? Are you living to please everyone except yourself?
In You Don’t Have to Eat the Eyeballs, Katrina Bos shares her journey from eternal people-pleaser to finding true self-love and connection, leaving her days of eating eyeballs (real and in everyday life) behind her.
