9780006281054: Why Am I Afraid to Tell You Who I Am?

Why do people continually hide their real selves from the people around them? Why are so many so insecure and afraid to open up? The answer, explains this text, is that maturity as people is reached by communicating and interacting with others. The problem this book considers is what happens to our real selves if no one else ever finds out what we are like? This volume explains how to be more emotionally open, and shows how people adopt roles and play psychological games to protect their inner selves. The courage to be our real selves can be developed, the author says, and then we can begin to grow.

Product Description:

This book deals with the fear involved in allowing others to see the "real" you. It recognizes that people are afraid of rejection, but that maturity is reached through communicating with other people. Sharing yourself with others is beneficial, enjoyable and essential for a full and satisfying life. Powell shows that the courage to be open to others can be developed. Honesty about our emotions, understanding of the roles we adopt to defend our fragile ego and recognition of the games we play with each other to avoid love are the first steps in this direction.
