Some of this book did not sit well with me. There were several references to childhood trauma, forgiving your parents for abuse, that just didn't seem to fit with what had just been discussed. I have no childhood traumas or abuse from family - which after listening to this book it seems that women who have gone thru this seemed to be the target audience. I thought the book would be more about how to be assertive & better express yourself/emotions, etc - not recovering from physical & emotional abuse.
While parts were slightly relatable to my situation, nothing gave me that "ah ha!" moment of thats what i need to do with myself. But hey, thats my opinion. Others may find just what they need out of this book.

most examples were so accurate you would think the nice girl syndrome was a pandemic.
it sure seems to be.
the emphasis is on learnt submission in childhood and watching other women act this way, 'taking things lying down'.
I did this for so long to be accepted and avoid displeasure. I like the tone of the book and the narrative is very pleasing. you will like listening as it explains scenarios and why it went wrong. specificity is important when dealing with the fragile human psyche.
I like the book alot. it will address all important human relationships the nice girl has been conditioned to become a people pleaser at her cost.
