Too Nice for Your Own Good

Many of you know that last spring I started using spare time to sell used books on Amazon. Why? To fulfill my REACH pledge and to pay off some debts. Anyway I picked up an interesting title at a thrift store--Too Nice for Your Own Good: How to Stop Making 9 Self-Sabotaging Mistakes by Duke Robinson. I confess that I sold it before I read it, but not before scanning through the book because the title intrigued me.

So, I can't actually recommend the book. But it sure looked intriguing. Are all your relationships in perfect condition? I didn't think so. I got convicted just reading the chapter titles. Anyway here are the 9 things Robinson discusses:

  • Trying to be perfect
  • Taking on too much
  • Not saying what you want
  • Suppressing your anger
  • Reasoning with irrationality
  • Telling little lies
  • Giving advice
  • Rescuing others
  • Protecting those in grief

If any of you read it, let me know if the content is as good as the headings.
