Why Am I Afraid to Tell You Who I Am? ~ Paperback ~ John Powell
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.Author BiographyJohn Powell, of the Society of Jesus, had a run-away success with his books Why Am I Afraid to Love? and Why Am I Afraid to Tell You Who I Am? in America in the late sixties.
