Living and Loving After Betrayal: How to Heal from Emotional Abuse, Deceit, Infidelity, and Chronic Resentment | [Steven Stosny]

Living and Loving After Betrayal: How to Heal from Emotional Abuse, Deceit, Infidelity, and Chronic Resentment

Betrayal has many faces, including anger, abuse, deceit, and infidelity. These feel like betrayal because they violate the implicit promise of emotional bonds, that your loved one will care about your well-being and never intentionally hurt you. If you've recently left a relationship where you felt betrayed by your partner, you may have difficulty moving on. In fact, it can seem impossible to view the world without the shadow of past betrayal hovering over you. As a result, you may struggle to create meaning in your life and to build new, loving relationships.

Publisher's Summary

Betrayal has many faces, including anger, abuse, deceit, and infidelity. These feel like betrayal because they violate the implicit promise of emotional bonds, that your loved one will care about your well-being and never intentionally hurt you. If you've recently left a relationship where you felt betrayed by your partner, you may have difficulty moving on. In fact, it can seem impossible to view the world without the shadow of past betrayal hovering over you. As a result, you may struggle to create meaning in your life and to build new, loving relationships.

In Living and Loving after Betrayal, therapist and relationship expert Steven Stosny offers effective tools for healing, based on his highly successful Compassion Power program. He founded the Compassion Power agency on the belief that we are more powerful when compassionate than when angry or aggressive, and that true strength comes from relating compassionately to others and remaining true to your deeper values.

In this audiobook, you'll learn practical strategies for overcoming betrayal-induced trauma and the chronic resentment and depression that result, using this innovative compassion-empowerment approach. Most audiobooks on betrayal only focus on the obvious issues, such as infidelity, abuse, or sex addiction. This audiobook explores the effects of those kinds of betrayal, as well as less-talked-about types, such as emotional manipulation, dishonesty, deceit, and financial cheating. In addition, the audiobook helps you regain a sense of trust in others so that you can eventually find another compassionate person to share your life with or, if you choose, to rebuild a relationship with your reformed betrayer.

    "this book is going to change my life"
    Would you listen to Living and Loving After Betrayal again? Why?

    I am listening to it again, listened to it once and I thought wow...how can a audible book help me where living over 2-1/2 years and two therapist, did nothing! I have felt so broken and logical telling of why a person reacts the way they do and tools to help you change. This book is amazing, I can not wait for my husband to get home from his hunting trip and listen to it, so he can understand me and himself better. I have total faith that we will be just fine. Better than fine.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It makes sense, it made me feel understood and it gave HELP to help yourself.

    "Better to buy the actual book"

    This book was not written to be an audio book. It was written to be used as a resource or a reference. The book is filled with exercises to aid in the healing process. There were parts when I forgot the point the author was getting to because of the narrators repetitiveness (not the narrators fault) I.e. a section that had "vice versa" repeated about 20 times. A lot of the information in the book did not stay with me because it was more exercise based.
