The Need to Please

Rating
Do you have a hard time saying no to others, no matter how outrageous their requests? If so, you might be a chronic people-pleaser. Unfortunately, because we live in a society that praises putting the needs of others before ourselves, it can be difficult to break this bad habit. And while thinking of others is always commendable, there is a fine line between sacrifice and senseless approval seeking. In The Need to Please, a leading mindfulness expert and psychotherapist provides compassionate, mindfulness-based techniques that will help chronic people-pleasers like you address and overcome your fears of failure, inappropriate self-sacrificing, loss of personal identity, and voracious need of approval. In addition, you will learn to put an end to the codependent behaviors that lie at the heart of being a people-pleaser. Change is hard-especially when it means going against years of social conditioning. But if you're ready to "Just Say No," to others' demands and start saying, "Yes" to your own needs, this book can help. You can find out more about these mindfulness techniques at livingmindfully.org.

Reviews

Why "The Need to Please"? Because we assume life begins someplace other than where we are right now. And we've swallowed the notion that we, in this moment, are not enough. Fine gives us the permission to pause and be mindful and gentle with ourselves and embrace the ordinary and extraordinary richesbeauty, compassion, generosity, creativity, and meaninginside each one us. It's a gift to read. It's a gift to give. Terry Hershey, author of "The Power of Pause" and "Soul Gardening""
