My heart told me there was more to this diagnosis than just coping with it. Medication was one thing, which took care of the logistics of my situation but my heart was still so very sick and out of control. I knew that something needed to move, and this book along with many of his other books, helped me identify the lies that I was believing that funded my powerless behaviors.
I greatly anticipated this book and am so glad its finally here as Danny Silk defines what real power and freedom is, and what I really do have control over. He defines what slavery looks like too and I found so many parallels. The ideas that are expressed in this wonderful piece have helped me understand how to conduct relationships on every level with all types of people. I now understand that I may be bipolar, but that is just a diagnosis, and is no excuse for poor living. I am no longer fused with my diagnosis and am free to take control of my life and goals for relationships.
I find that I have to think a lot harder about things, because everything is not as it seems the first, second and sometimes third time around but it is possible to live in control of me. Reading this wonderful book leaves me empowered to be me without feeling embarrassed, scared, or anxious about showing the world who I really am.
Thank you Danny and Sheri. I love you both so much and am reading this a second time around with my husband.
This book is not just for married people. It is a book about "owning" your part in interacting with people (constructively and destructively) and learning how to become powerful without destroying the ones you love. It explains SO much on how I messed up (destroyed) so many relationships in my past (familial and friends). I really have a whole new depth of reality. I will probably read my copy of the book at least 2 more times. And, I will recommend the book over and over again - to anyone struggling to love someone and feeling frustrated and powerless. Although, I will never be able to loan my copy to anyone, because I underlined, circled, and wrote so many notes, that the book is now a journal of my inner most feelings and revelations.
Lastly, I am married. And, my marriage is fragile. There is a WHOLE lot of work to be done to change the tides from choppy waters to smooth sailing. The difference now is that I have hope. I no longer have fear or defeat. I will take a chance and be vulnerable and communicate what it is I want and need, without critism to my husband. I WILL listen to what it is he wants and needs, regardless of whether it is a task I am responsible for - or not. No matter what happens from this point forward, I KNOW how to love the person without demanding that they change. Ultimately, I can only control myself. It is no longer my job to change or critique others. As long as I keep God first, focus on myself second, do not allow "Consumers" to deplete my garden, express "God's love (in and out of my home), establish healthy boundaries (not selfish ones - healthy ones), and ensure that I manage relationships in a mutually respectful way, I CANNOT lose.
As my brother-in-law told me, "Read this book with your heart. You will be changed. I promise."
God bless you Danny Silk!
