The behavior known as "subjugation" in psychology is one of the major patterns of thinking and behaving that can impair a life. This “Doormat Syndrome” or “people-pleasing on steroids” is more common than most people realize. We are all somewhere on the spectrum of subjugation. Success in the life of one who subjugates chronically will not be achieved. This book is an exposé of this phenomenon. I explain it, illustrate it, show how it presents itself, explore its roots, and, most importantly, make clear how it may be overcome.
