Different concept and approach to relationships
on July 24, 2014
Painful learning. Especially hard to read if you, like me, are going through a divorce and want it to be over - NOT how to salvage a relationship.
But getting a peek into why you react the way you do, what you do, how you approach or avoid conflict or contact... This book is helping me to re-think how I attach myself to acquaintances, friends, lovers. Why some of the relationships worked well, and others were doomed from the start. There is excellent practical advice and exercises (some impossible to do as a singleton) that can motivate you to find better alternatives in communication and especially to short-circuit the self-destructive habits that have become so ingrained. Whether you pursue or withdraw as a matter of course, this book can help find a softer, safer way to do it.
