26. Nice Guy? Grow Your Sack Back (Through Self-Acceptance) - With Dr. Michael Pariser
We go further down the rabbit hole on "Nice Guy Syndrome" with a good friend of Dr. Robert Glover's... Dr. Michael Pariser.
With over 20 years of experience treating emotional issues and AUTHOR of the book No More Mr. Nice Guy: The Hero's Journey - A Step-by-Step Guide to Becoming an Integrated Male. Since 2012, he has been helping Nice Guys find their way to greater confidence and masculinity.
In this episode we dig into how "nice guys" can grow their sack back. Not through traditional symbols of masculinity like big muscles or being an "asshole". But through self-acceptance. Yes, you heard that right, self-acceptance.
We talk how the root of nice guy syndrome is in a belief that we are inherently "unlovable" and how the cure to this (and all of the many symptoms of nice guy syndrome) is to accept ALL parts of ourselves and quit the constant chase to mask all parts of us that we deem unworthy.
- The difference between healthy and toxic masculinity
- Asserting ourselves as men in a healthy way
- The three aspects to getting in relationship with someone (interest, intimacy and commitment). And how nice guys often mistake interest for intimacy and rush commitment (thinking "she's the one"!!)
To connect with Dr. Michael Pariser....
Buy his Book "No More Mr. Nice Guy: The Hero's Journey - A Step-by-Step Guide to Becoming an Integrated Male" (I HIGHLY recommend)
