How to be Loving Instead of “Too Nice”
When People Take Advantage of You
It’s a frustrating experience to have people mistake your kindness as an excuse to walk all over you. Doreen Virtue’s new book Assertiveness for Earth Angels is designed for those that she calls “earth angels”. As such, they repeatedly have the same problems in relationships. These kind-hearted people are taken advantage of over and over and they have a hard time standing up for themselves.
Do You Believe in Karma?
Assertiveness for Earth Angels touches on spiritual elements such as crystals, negative energy and superpowers. Christ and God are also mentioned, but the book makes no assumption that readers believe in the Bible. The book uses Virtue’s background in psychology to explain common people problems. What are the traits of a toxic relationship? Why is it so damaging to be in a relationship with someone who has a substance abuse problem? Virtue gives answers in a no-nonsense way.
Finding Your Life Purpose
The book includes a few tips on how to find your purpose and how to stay healthy. Virtue urges readers to “be your own authority figure” rather than seeking the approval of others when making decisions.
