Millions of people walk on eggshells, constantly second-guessing themselves, editing what they say, worrying if they did things okay, trying to be in a good mood, all to prevent criticism, cold shoulders, angry outbursts, or to keep from creating negative impressions. They lose their very sense of self and don’t like the persons they’ve become.
Dr. Stosny, author of You Don’t Have to Take It Anymore: How to Turn Your Resentful, Angry, or Abusive Relationship into a Compassionate, Loving One (Free Press, January 2006) discusses:
- The dynamics and effects of walking on eggshells
- The harm to children
- The way out
