This book really helped me understand there are different kinds of betrayal that eat away at trust. I always new I didn't feel safe in my relationship of 26 years, but I couldn't put my finger on it. This book opened my eyes and confirmed my feelings, helped me put a label to what I was feeling which also confirmed that no I am not crazy and no I am not being unreasonable. I read this book in 3 days! By the way I'm an MFT and I will definitely be using what I learned from this book with my clients. So so good!
This woman is incredibly insightful and a beautiful soul. She gave me practical advice and tools for deep introspection.
As for the reviews about her swearing....
Effing grow up. It was appropriate when used. She identified with my emotions through the use of those words. Your offense to language is NOT a reason to disregard this amazing work.
This audio book gave me a much needed insight and change of view in the way I was approaching my own relationship. In hearing this book I gained the confidence to continue mending my relationship.
I started readying this book because I felt betrayed. As the words continued, it was like a light bulb went off. If I want to be able to trust again, then I really need to change the way I looked and acted about the situation. I completely surprised my husband by this and he is skeptical still, but by changing the way I reacted to things (the opposite of what I would normally do) I found that I could be more open and understanding to what happened. I figured it would take a long time to get over, but it didn't and I am much happier because of it. I shared this book with my husband so hopefully it helps him as well. I highly recommend this book.
It was okay. Had some good points but wasn't a fan I'd the swearing rants and the last part where the author says I've told you how to trust, now go do it. It's easy. Okay, if she says that she must not have been betrayed so much that it was easy to rebuild trust.
the F word and all others were used. this is supposed to be a self help book, but I felt harmed in the process. if swear words don't bother you - it has great concepts and ideas to work through
