You Don’t Owe Anyone is for perfectionists, workaholics, people pleasers, and strivers who feel stuck in the try-hard cycle. Sharing her experiences as a life coach and recovering perfectionist, Caroline Garnet McGraw shows us how we can free ourselves from the weight of expectations and encourages us to move our lives forward without apology.

Inspired by the author’s viral essay “You Don’t Owe Anyone an Interaction,” this book invites us to make surprising choices that can help us get unstuck. Rather than offering more ways to effect change through sheer effort, these personal stories serve as a compassionate witness, a reflection of our own perfectionistic tendencies. They also are a wakeup call jolting us out of our martyr mentality and inspiring us to move in new, positive directions.

Through simple, accessible coaching practices, You Don’t Owe Anyone shows us what it looks like to refuse to over-function in the old ways. It invites us to make the same surprising choices that have helped McGraw and her clients move past perfectionism, empowering us to quiet our fears and heal our hearts.

Excerpt from the Introduction:

“Rather than providing you more ways to ‘effort’ and effect change—which you’ve tried before—this book offers you something different. It’s a kind of compassionate witness, a series of stories and situations that offer you ways to glimpse your own reflection. In this way, the book asks your participation. It invites you to enter into your own questions, your own stories, at a deeper level.”
