Welcome to the fascinating world of behavioral paradoxes: apparent contradictions which make sense once we understand the human needs and motivations behind them. This inspiring book invites you to ponder contradictory behaviors which reflect our shared humanity and, surprisingly, offer pathways to improved mental health, meaningful living, and well-being for ourselves and others. Rich with common sense and examples from lived experience, Dr. Manassis (retired child psychiatrist) provides a fresh look at mindfulness, unselfconsciousness, reciprocity, wonder, and other "stuff" we need to live with equanimity and purpose. The ripple effects go well beyond our personal lives to affect our families, communities, and future generations. Happy thinking and reading!
