For anyone concerned with their current relationship or looking to figure out what went amiss in past ones, You’ll Do Anything For Him are useful texts that may set the foundation for more satisfying future relationships.
The book is well-written, jargon free, and taps into the wishes, hopes,and fantasies of starting a romantic relationship, only to find oneself repeating a style of relating learned in childhood - a "One-Person Relationship" - in which one sacrifices his/her needs and feelings in order to please and not be abandoned by the other.
It not only helps readers identify their pattern of relating and where it evolves from in family dynamics, but it also shows readers how to break out of this maladaptive "One-Person" style of relating and learn to safeguard their sense of self by taking risks to express thoughts and feelings in a "Two-Person" style of relating.
This book does an excellent job of showing readers how to honor their thoughts and feelings while simultaneously listening to and acknowledging the thoughts and feelings of their partners. It also advises readers on what to do when their partners are incapable of respecting their thoughts and feelings.
I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling to be heard in a relationship. It is the perfect book for all therapists to have on their bookshelves to give to clients.
Being in a one-sided relationship is a difficult thing, especially when you aren’t aware of the toxicity that exists between the two of you. But this book does a fantastic job of giving readers the questions and insights needed to process this problem on their own—and that was my favorite part of it. Rather than write about how some people will inevitably find themselves in negative and oftentimes abusive relationships as a result of what they became accustomed to as a child, and then try to sell readers on her own psychological treatment services, the book never goes there. The focus is always on helping the reader identify the problem, acknowledge that something needs to be done, and then provides actionable tips in the end on what to do to fix it.
Very well written and easy to read (despite the questions themselves often being hard to swallow), I’d recommend this book to anyone who’s ever been in a toxic relationship—with family, friends, or lovers.
Most illuminating is that the work is in the mirror and begins with the self. Mystery solved and what is left is practice and making new neural pathways in small but fruitful steps forward. One will never regret reading this book. Thank you!
