A few days ago, my husband and I met up after work for dinner and somehow, our conversation led to a disagreement. I was annoyed, so I ignored him. We ate dinner in silence because neither wanted to be the first to budge. Although I don't like going to bed angry, I tend to be more stubborn about him reaching out to me when I'm upset.

Many of you lovely readers responded to my mention of being a people-pleaser the last time we wrote about apologizing (Katie's here, Maria's here) and it got me thinking: non-people-pleasers must be a little baffled by how people-pleasers go through their days. I'm surprised to learn that there is a scientific term for people-pleasing---sociotropy---and Urban Dictionary was very helpful in offering this thoughtful, gentle…
