Anxious to Please: 7 Revolutionary Practices for the Chronically Nice

Chronic Niceness affects multitudes, causing severe anxiety and depression, crippling self-esteem, and undermining and destroying relationships. Anxious to Please reveals the primary psychological cause of Chronic Niceness: Anxious Attachment. Anxious Attachment drives the Nice Person to accommodate, acquiesce, and avoid conflict. Nice People take what they're given rather than asking for what they want, often sacrificing relationship, careers and their own integrity.

    "Help for the "chronically nice""


    If you know someone who suffers from anxiety or you yourself suffer from it, this is a good read to explain why. People who are "too nice" suffer from a form of social anxiety. They want to be loved but do not believe that they deserve love and in fact often feel unlovable. They are sometimes referred to as "people pleasers" and live a life of quiet desperation pretending that everything's well with the world. This anxious attachment disorder often leads them to stay in unhealthy relationships and are prone to sabotage good relationships. This book is about helping those people to gain confidence and be the person they were meant to be.
