I know this is true because I live in such a family. The exact details of my problem will not be revealed in this review. But I think it gives me a greater understanding about what Doctor Tessina is trying to achieve than most.
The book explains in easy to understand language about the problems faced by people raised in a non-caring and sharing environment. There are two important aspects of the human psyche that need to be addressed by those damaged by a dysfunctional family. These two aspects are, self-awareness and self-acceptance, together they form the basis of human dignity.
Guidance on how to achieve self-awareness and self-acceptance is well documented. I found the exercises most valuable and relevant to my needs. I am sure that other people in my situation would find them just as useful.
Once a person has accepted who they are and learnt to love themselves, they can relate better to others. The book shows in some detail how to achieve this. If the steps set out in the exercises are practiced regularly I am confident they will bring about positive changes.
To develop as an individual you need to learn new skills, to be shown your deficiencies, your strengths, how to plan ahead, become aware of yourself and be in control. Mastering all of these tasks is impossible without some form of guidance. It Ends With You - is the perfect tool to guide those wanting to grow away from dysfunction, and embark on the path to realizing their true potential. That is a well balanced, loving and caring person.Read more ›
Tina Tessina, PhD, provides a road map for those who are ready to face and change the patterns that prevent happiness and fulfillment in their lives. It Ends With You, Grow Up and Out of Dysfunction, is a self-help tome that makes relatively quick work of years of therapy that some endure on an expensive couch.
Like a fruitful meditation, It Ends With You is a guided visualization through one's past history and into a healthier future. Tessina understands that each of us is in charge of our own mental health, and helps readers find the reigns to take control of their happiness and their lives.
"The task for all of us is to rise above the issues and wounds of childhood," writes Tessina. "Becoming truly adult, autonomous, able to govern ourselves and our responses to those around us."
Tessina takes readers on a journey that examines family patterns that persist for generations, mapping the positive and negative trends to help recognize the habits we've unconsciously brought into our own lives from childhood. She helps us recognize negative habits of thinking and behavior and replace them with positive routines that lead to healthier outcomes. She calls it "recreating yourself."
Tessina uses the weather to help readers identify and understand emotions - comparing sadness to a rainstorm, happiness to a clear, sunny day.Read more ›
