The Whimsical Rebel: Break People Pleasing Addiction without Becoming an Asshole (Paperback)
If the title of this book made you want to read the description ... you're a People Pleaser.
And if that's the case, I don't even need to describe what's inside because you already want to read it just to make me proud. Because you value my opinion of you, even though we've never met.
First, I already like you. We'll probably be best friends. So don't even worry about that. And second, believe it or not, that thing that will drive you to read this book cover to cover, to get lost in the funny and fucked up life stories about me and my clients, to crush all the intense emotional exercises in every chapter so you can feel those "pat on the back" endorphins ... that's not the thing that needs to change. That's your massively giving heart. It's beautiful-like you-and doesn't need to be toned down. Instead, these pages and the insights within will help you learn to harness that big love for the betterment of yourself. Because you can't love too hard.
Your capacity to love so generously is what makes you a goddamn unicorn in this world. We just need to be sure you're aiming that love in the right direction first. (Yup, you guessed it, directly at that hot piece of cute af reading these very words.) So crack this baby open and take the first step of your recovery from People Pleasing Addiction. All the while, staying whimsically, rebelliously, and gloriously YOU.
