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

Insights on self-awareness, personal growth and communication with others from the best-selling author of Why Am I Afraid to Love? New edition including a fresh new internal design.

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 John Powell 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?

In this enduring classic, the companion to Why Am I Afraid to Love?, John Powell 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, he says, and then we can begin to grow.

Now newly designed for a fresh audience, Why Am I Afraid to Tell You Who I Am? is as relevant as it has been for twenty years. With a proven track record, it continues to speak to the needs and aspirations of people today. It is best included in self help sections of general bookshops, but also has a religious appeal.

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.
