You've Got to Please Yourself ...



This song gets to me because I was brought up to please others, and the ghost of that upbringing is still inside me. Some of it dissipated when I had booths in art fairs, because many people were indifferent and a few were downright hateful. A handful liked the work, whether they bought it or not, and I was grateful for that. While the urge to please is good in reasonable amounts, it is damaging in large doses.
