Don’t Be A Mug

I used to be a people pleaser, so insecure and lacking in self belief that I’d mould my own personality and morals to fit those of whoever were my particular friends at that time. It got me into all sorts of bother and I’m working hard to eradicate that side of my character and be my own person. I’m still a work in progress but I’m getting there. I focus now on those who matter. No more playing the mug.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. I am also a recovering people pleaser and I struggled (and continue to struggle) to recognize what part of me was actually “me”. You lose yourself so quickly in the process of keeping others happy and it takes a lot of work to see yourself again through all the fog. *Cheers! No more playing the mug 🙂

  2. So true! It can take many years to learn this valuable lesson. I try to keep in mind the importance of being honest in all things (Hebrews 13:18) including being honest to myself. Everyone won’t like us, as you mentioned, but at least we’ll be true to who we are and can build real lasting relationships.
