Next up, she perfectly outlines the signs of people-pleasing behavior, and how we can go about transforming those habits into something more balanced & mutual. Again, she offers so many practical examples on how to do this. Later chapters go into living in the present moment and truly appreciating the beauty all around us. Of course, it's difficult to do that when we're doubting ourselves at every corner. One of her ideas that I really love is called "word replacement", where you essentially take any negative thoughts going through your mind, and replace the repeated critical words with something positive. At first it feels strange, but with time, it builds so much awareness about when your mind is going into a dark place and how you can start to step out of it!
Her writing on emotional abuse is spot on. From garden variety jerks to pathological manipulators, she covers it all! Be sure to check out the fifth chapter for a complete list of the warning signs, which can help anyone to recognize crazy-making behavior before it's too late--to name a few: stonewalling, emotional withdrawal, triangulation, comparing you to others, hot and cold cycle, anxiety over his or her feedback... If any of these sound familiar to you, please read her book! It will help so much.
No matter what led you here, I guarantee that the ending to Ms. Arabi's book will leave a big smile on your face. After finishing it, I felt hopeful, optimistic, and enthusiastic. This one will stay in my Kindle library forever, so I can always reference it on a difficult day. Thank you so much for writing it, and thank you for giving a voice to people everywhere who are still working on finding our own voice.
