Do you, or does someone you love, take comfort in misery?
If achievement creates anxiety, if intimacy leads to fear, or if happiness produces uneasiness, you might be unwittingly making choices that keep you miserable. You might, in fact, be addicted to misery.
Feeling too good for too long-or even good at all-can be a frightening situation for those who believe that every joy must be equalized by a setback explains groundbreaking author and psychotherapist Anne Katherine. In this first-of-its-kind, fascinating, and prescriptive book, Katherine describes how many people guard against disappointment, fear, or shame by not allowing themselves to fully experience intimacy, success, or pleasure.
Offering exercises, personal stories, and gentle wisdom, Katherine empowers readers to climb out of their carefully calibrated misery and find new comfort in contentment.
