Not My Job To Make You Happy (feat. Candice Monique)
Not My Job To Make You Happy features Melbourne’s finest soul singer, Candice Monique. It’s a jazzy, soul record that is all about moving on from the need to please everyone.
I used to have a tendency to diffuse social confrontation by just swaying to other people’s needs. Which I recently learned isn’t really healthy. As Dylan-Finch explains:
“We all curate our lives to some extent. And for people-pleasers, the ways in which we do that “curating” piece often stems from a place of fear … To avoid conflict, negative emotions, … will go out of their way to mirror someone’s opinions and appease them in order to deescalate situations or potential issues.”
Anyone else relate?
