Publisher's Summary

Are you tired of failed romantic relationships and friendships? Have your previous partners told you that you are "too possessive" or "jealous"? Do you feel yourself burn with jealousy when you see your partner talking with some attractive acquaintance? Do you go through your partner's things or demand detailed explanations of where they have been? Most people know this isn't the foundation for successful relationships, and they would like to stop reacting this way, but how?

Author Jessica Riley outlines a 10-step plan for overcoming these hang-ups in Trust Issues. Riley pulls no punches here - she gets straight to the heart of the problem from the first chapter. She addresses right from the start your thinking process, which is leading you to exhibit your possessive behavior. However, Riley is careful to explain the difference between our thinking and our actions. If that sounds too obvious, remember that your goal is to decrease the actions you're taking that are toxic to your relationships (the thoughts you are having may not feel good, but the problems with your partner don't start until you start acting on those thoughts).

Trust Issues begins with some questions for the listener's personal reflection, so you may want to have your journal handy as you listen. These questions will start you on your journey to improved relationships with some knowledge about yourself. Armed with the answers to these questions, you can move into Riley's chapter on why you have difficulties believing what your partner is saying to you. This will be a huge chapter for you if you're struggling with overpossessiveness, because your partner's statements ("I'm working late tonight" or "that was my mom on the phone") are often the flash points for conflict.

Great help to those with Trust issues

The key to this book is to identify where your insecurities come from and how to deal with them yourself. Otherwise you will drag other people you care about down a negative and nasty path of shame and regret. The author sets some simple but effective steps for overcoming your insecurities but it takes effort and commitment from the YOU, the reader, to follow through and believe. It's a long process dealing with these types of issues but this book will help jump start the process.

Also - get into therapy before your Jealousy gets away from you and makes you delusional. The mind is powerful and will take you down some dark and ugly places if you allow it. Take control back from yourself

best of luck

I had a shift

I had a shift through this book and I understood opposite Jealousy is not not to be Jealous. it's a complete different approach and shift. while I was a jealous person and had so much anxiety and stress for the same thing , now I feel so free and much happier than before reading the book. I hope it happens to many people.

Great listen

If you have trust issues this is a great book to listen to. It will help you overcome some of your own insecurities. It will help you reflect on yourself and realize that a lot of the trust issues is within yourself and not your partner.
