Recovering People Pleaser, Rob Shepherd

moving the podcast – interview from July 31, 2013

~~~

Rob Shepherd is one of those names I’ve seen around almost since the moment I started blogging. I’d read many of his posts over those years, but didn’t know very much about him. Then guest Ricky Anderson suggested I talk to Rob, saying what a great guy he was and how he wasn’t afraid of anything.

I found out Rob actually is afraid of some things, after all. We talk about that, the balancing act between husband, father and pastor, and his first book, about fighting his people-pleasing addiction.

"So, when you start to understand how God has created you and really start plugging into the areas that you are gifted, it really starts to give you some confidence to do some of those things that used to be scary to you." ~ Rob

“So when you start to understand how God created you and really start plugging in
to the areas that you are gifted, it really starts to give you some confidence
to do some of those things that used to be scary to you.”

  1. This was exactly what I needed to listen to today! Yesterday I volunteered to write a guest post for someone and they have been absolutely horrible to work with. It’s been a long time since I’ve let someone make me feel this way, and I’m seriously considering backing out of the project. It was nice to hear someone speak on people pleasing and our fear of disappointing others.

    • Yay, I’m glad! I really enjoyed hearing what people had unique to talk about – unique and yet so many things I could apply to my life too. I’m sorry that person is being difficult though. In situations like that, it’s hard to balance our desire to fulfill our commitments – or even just our desire to be nice – and a real need to also protect and take care of ourselves. It’s a fine line sometimes!
