If we focus on pleasing others for long enough to the detriment of our own happiness, we eventually forget what makes us happy.
In fact, we may even forget who we are altogether.
We get so lost in the wants and needs of others that we become strangers to ourselves.
It is possible, even necessary, to course correct, to regain our bearing and rediscover our own needs and desires, but it will not be easy nor will it be painless.
