There are qualities such as kindness, empathy, and agreeableness that can help us get and stay connected with each other, and there are fiery qualities such as anger, shrewdness, and forcefulness that can help us get and stay connected to ourselves. Roughly speaking, the first set of attributes foster relationship, while the second set enables personal empowerment and assertiveness. At work or in friendship, in marriages and partnerships, we often tend to focus on the other person, sometimes at our own expense. 

Many of us, therefore, get cut off from part of our essential nature early in life. But these traits don’t disappear, even when we banish them. They emerge as dark moods—irritability, resentment, or bitterness. They surface in chaotic or passive-aggressive acts that sabotage us or are ineffective. They turn up as symptoms--anxieties, panic attacks or depression. In this lecture, we will consider the inner and outer demand that many of us feel to be “nice.” What are the benefits of being kind and accommodating? What are the costs? And how can we make sure this tendency doesn’t get in the way of our authenticity and growth toward wholemess?
