I love how cats aren’t pleasers. I doubt they worry if they make someone, other than themselves, happy.
The old saying, “You catch more flies with honey” has that subtle message: be a pleaser. And I was raised to be that way, don’t disappoint, avoid conflict… How unrealistic is that? That’s a recipe for daily confusion and stress. So I’ll take my queues from the relaxed cat, who clearly disappoints no one.
