“There’s no freedom in being bound to what other people are saying about you.” Every week, Oprah is setting an intention exclusively for Oprah Daily Insiders, with reflections on topics like letting go, forgiveness, coming into your own, and more. Well, good Sunday to you all! I am speaking this week about my former chronic people-pleasing ways because the word yes used to drop off my tongue whether I wanted it to or not, and I was well into my 40s before I became strong enough to start saying no on a regular basis, when I wanted to. I was always so worried about what other people would think of me. I wanted so much for people to like me and feel like they could rely on me. I know all of that came from what happened to me as a kid. And even though I knew that, it was still difficult to say no.Well, there is a piece right now on our site called “Is FOPO the New FOMO?” In it, a high-performing psychologist named Michael Gervais writes that if we don’t overcome our fear of other people’s opinions—he calls it “FOPO”—then we will have spent our brief time on this incredible planet playing a role, inhabiting an identity, conforming to the perceived expectations of other people.
