The message of Stop Being Nice – Be Real! is more relevant than ever. To make his ideas even more easily understood, the author decided to revise the text and add humorous illustrations. Condensed, simplified and more light-hearted, this new edition is the first step for all those who want to let go of their harmful habits and open themselves up to the
concepts of non-violent communication. We're often better at telling others a few home truths than at simply telling them the truth about ourselves. To buy recognition, acceptance or the illusion of comfort, we've gotten into the habit of being accommodating. We wear a mask, we play a role, we hide what's going on inside us. This separation from ourselves, which we impose on ourselves to get along with others, is the source of a spiral of violence.
Sooner or later, not listening to ourselves leads to not listening to others, just as not respecting ourselves leads to not respecting others. Becoming more aware of how we think and act, learning to recognize our needs and how to satisfy them by ourselves—this is how to defuse the mechanism of violence.
