Complaint Free Relationships
on May 29, 2010
Will Bowen has done it again! I attended his Complaint Free Living Retreat several years ago and found it to be inspiring. As time passed, I fell off the complaint free way of thinking. Looking for a way back into a more peaceful life, I bought this book from Amazon. This was exactly what I needed to remind me of what I learned at the retreat. Each chapter builds off the previous chapter.
Chapter 1 - Relating In Relationships
Chapter 2 - When Worlds Collide
Chapter 3 - Getting Your Needs Met
Chapter 4 - Why We G.R.I.P.E. (get attention, remove yourself from responsibility, inspire envy or brag, have power over someone, or excuse your poor performance)
Chapter 5 - Getting It Out
Chapter 6 - The Primary Relationship
Chapter 7 - It's Not personal; It's Personal
At the end of each chapter there are exercises that help reinforce the lessons from the chapter and pleasantly encourage no complaining. I have been using the techniques in the book and wearing the bracelet I got from the retreat. The techniques really do work. There is more peace in my life. It really is up to me on how I react to others. everyone is responsible for their own behavior and I will not take that upon myself. I will do my part in being peaceful and spreading positivity.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants or needs a positive change in their life. It is possible.
