The Approval Fix
How to Break Free From People-Pleasing
By Joyce Meyer
Based on her book Approval Addiction, best-selling author Joyce Meyer teaches us how to overcome the debilitating desire to please and become free to accept the love of God and others.
When we hear the word addiction, we tend to think of unbreakable habits involving drugs or alcohol. But many people struggle each day with a different kind of addiction: a deep need for the approval of others. Their unquenchable thirst for love and acceptance often causes people to suffer in relationships, give up on their dreams, and even forfeit their destinies.
The key to breaking free from approval addiction, and the people-pleasing that goes along with it, is to understand and embrace the love of God and others and to be able to love yourself.
In The Approval Fix, best-selling author Joyce Meyer offers the practical insights and lessons necessary to find freedom from the need for approval. Anyone who wants to enjoy life and build healthy relationships, but struggles to feel accepted, will benefit immensely from this book, which is full of proven principles from Meyer's years of experience helping people find freedom in many areas of their lives.

I like Joyce Meyer's style. It's to the point but with a veneer of self-deprecating humour, so that even though what she says might have a slight sting to it, you come out feeling better for it anyway. This book on people-pleasing is no different. It's short, easy to read but nonetheless packs a punch . . . gently . . . Approval seeking is an addiction we need to see it for what it is and work through the steps to give it up. This easy to read book could be a good step on that path. — Melanie Carroll, Together Magazine
