You are born with an inner light. A glow. You’re still sparkly, but like a lightbulb covered in dust, you might not feel or appear radiant. If you don’t feel happy or excited about life right now, it means that your sparkle has been dimmed, and it’s time to rekindle your sparkle.
Doreen Virtue, best-selling author of
Assertiveness for Earth Angels: How to Be Loving Instead of “Too Nice” presents:
How to Break Free of Drama and Negativity
Don’t Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle
Are you tired of all the drama in your life?
Do you often experience relationships that are difficult, challenging and cause a lot of stress?
Have you tried to break free from toxic relationships only to find yourself with the same types of people and with the same recurring patterns?
Or do you have friends or family members who leave you feeling hurt and angry?
It’s time to say goodbye to drama and negativity!
Doreen Virtue, prolific best-selling Hay House author who holds three degrees in Counseling Psychology, understands on a personal level how we can get drawn into a drama cycle. She also knows first-hand how sensitive people are more likely to have trouble saying “no” to toxic relationships – as sensitive people often worry or feel bad about hurting other people’s feelings. She has learned through her experience and her extensive training that there are psychological and physiological reasons we get trapped in stress-drama cycles that leave us feeling depleted and disconnected from ourselves and others.
In this uplifting and informative book, you’ll learn how to:

How much drama do you tolerate?
How much do you “hook into” other people’s drama?
Do you know the difference between drama-based rescuing and genuinely helping someone in need?
Do you attract your own drama?
Why should you know your drama quotient? Because drama, stress, and pushing yourself beyond your limits is dangerously unhealthy physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Let’s assess your personal Drama Quotient to help answer these questions:
Don’t Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle will help you understand why drama always seems to find you and how to develop healthy, loving and supportive relationships. By recognizing your patterns, you’ll be able to fully understand and change your actions so that your sparkle can shine through.
HOW TO BREAK FREE FROM DRAMA ADDICTION
Your experiences with negativity and drama can be highly addictive patterns, with a physiological basis. That’s right! Your brain and body may be hooked on stressful experiences that dull your light.
Drama is a form of self-sabotage and self-punishment that is highly addictive. Even if you protest that you can’t stand drama, there are “secondary gain” rewards of involving yourself in dramatic situations and relationships, such as:
Receiving sympathy and other forms of attention from others
Focusing upon someone else’s issues instead of your own
Giving yourself a great excuse to procrastinate
Feeling needed, either by rescuing others or being rescued
The key to healing from trauma and regaining your sparkle in life lies in understanding the link between drama and trauma and discovering and breaking your patterns so that you can let your inner sparkle shine.
TAKE A DRAMA DETOX
In Don’t Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle, Doreen will teach you natural, active coping measures you break free from drama. One example of these tools is how to do a Drama Detox.
Watching stressful movies or television programs
Reading stressful news stories
Interacting with stressful online social-media “friends”
Associating with people who trigger drama in you or near you

Listening to aggressive music
Consuming high-histamine foods and beverages
Consuming caffeine, nicotine, or other anxiety-producing stimulants

As you can see, there are many healthful replacements for drama—and they are more fun and satisfying than drama, too! Have patience with the process of replacing old unhealthful cravings with your new healthful lifestyle choices. Any progress you make in the direction of health is positive and something to feel very good about.
Don’t Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle is for anyone who is tired of being pulled into the stress-drama cycle and who is ready for a journey of self-discovery into the deepest recesses of the soul for a rekindling of the sparkle that is within each and every one of us.
In 5 simple steps, you’ll be guided through a drama detox to get you on the path of stress-free and drama-free living! Once you understand how you may be choosing drama (even when you think you aren’t), you’ll learn the specific steps to create new behaviors that foster good feelings, more balanced relationships and a lot less stress.

Praise for Assertiveness For Earth Angels
– Agnes O.
Your book and the message of assertiveness has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. Thank you so much for writing this book. I have been the kind of girl who was always in the veil of niceness and used to hiding my true emotions and feelings. In order to make others happy, I used to compromise and it used to hurt so much, I used to cry inside and smile outside so that others wouldn’t come to know about my sufferings and problems. I created a cage for myself and locked me inside and even threw the key somewhere I didn't know until I read your book, Assertiveness for Earth Angels. These lessons of assertiveness have really changed my life. Now I know my boundaries and don't allow narcissist people to cross over them. Moreover, I have learnt the secret to happiness which is just be your true self and be with the present moment, let the past go, let GOD be in-charge of the situation and no worries about the future. Thank you Doreen for inspiring me and helping me to find myself again.
– Aarti V.
This book helped me enormously with my self-confidence and assertiveness with other people in my life and especially my family. As you feel with family sometimes, it’s hard to say no, but with this amazing book, I felt good about not always saying yes and not feeling guilty about it but positive and confident in myself and saying the right thing without hurting anyone s feelings. Loved the book.
WOW! This book is EXACTLY what I needed. Once again Doreen gets right to the point and helps us in her gentle, truthful ways. I am always the one to hold my tongue to avoid conflict. But, Doreen gives me the tools I need to express my true feelings and empower myself to live my one and only life. I really will use these incredible lessons to confront adverse situations and free myself of toxic people. Doreen is truly my guardian angel guiding my path!
– Mary M.
Doreen Virtue's book Assertiveness for Earth Angels helped me to realize that assertiveness comes from a place of love; for others as well as self. It helped me set boundaries and be very clear about what my needs are while maintaining a loving and supportive attitude.
A close friend lent me Assertiveness for Earth Angels and for two weeks I carried it around in my bag getting it out and soaking up its beautiful truths every opportunity I could. I found myself communicating with my nearest and dearest things that I had kept close for fear of hurting their feelings but at a huge emotional cost to me. I'm so very grateful for both my beautiful friend and this beautiful book which came at just the right time. Now 12 months later, I can still remember and have used so many of these easy to apply truths in so many situations. It's amazing that we can be so clever at hiding such simple truths from ourselves but such a gift to find that it's easy enough to remember how to speak up with the right loving reminders. Thank You for this very special book!
Assertiveness for Earth Angels changed my life! Doreen's book helped me set healthy boundaries not only for my sake but also for others as well. These two practices have led to me to changing my life for the better. I feel my intuition has grown, I know more clearly when I need Angelic or divine help or healing. I can request help for people all over the world when I see instances of trauma or need.
Assertiveness for Earth Angels has helped me a lot in regards to knowing what to do in the situation I was in at the time. I felt it was written “just for me”. It helped put things in focus as when you are in the middle of the forest you can’t see the trees! After reading this book, I have kept it to go back and read it again and again to remind myself to stay on the right path.
– Christine B.
Doreen writes from a place of deep understanding of the soul and so is able to gently guide you into a place where the earth angel can protect this loving caring nature but also stand firm and understand that staying in your own power is really what assertiveness is. Recommended for all earth Angels out there and anyone who finds it difficult to say no.
