Malouf reviews a plethora of reasons why people focus on negativities like prejudging. Sometimes, prejudging reflects our deep insecurities and fears. The author goes further to offer model behaviors in order to protect ourselves against unwarranted or unjust attacks.
Examples of what to do include setting up boundaries or moats to ward off attacks. In addition, we should find time to contemplate a wise course of action instead of firing back other mindless and ill-conceived attacks.
The author encourages us to do a self analysis to determine what creates the fears or anxieties that seem to keep returning. Very often, these fears pertain to past hurts because people rarely if ever focus negatively on their successes or triumphs.
Overall, Malouf's book shows us how to cope successfully with the negative people and aspects of our lives in order to direct our energies to more positive endeavors. The author deals forthrightly with the classic biases like prejudice due to group affiliation or membership. This book is a must read for anyone dealing with anger management issues!
