Is Your Relationship Being Torn Apart?
Are you struggling in a difficult relationship? Do you fixate on a problem that may unravel your union? Whether it’s criticism, addiction, affairs, sexual issues, porn use, financial problems, or simply growing apart, navigating the twists and turns of relationships is difficult and takes work. The key is knowing exactly what works.
In You’re Tearing Us Apart: Twenty Ways We Wreck Our Relationships and Strategies to Repair Them, relationship experts Pat Love, Eva Berlander, and Kathleen McFadden reveal the 20 most common relationship pitfalls and spell out proven strategies to help you repair and move forward.
Relationships in the 21st century are complicated, but many broken relationships not only can be mended, but they can actually be magnificent. Even if one partner causes a problem, it doesn’t necessarily take two to fix it; a shift in one partner’s attitude and actions can create a positive ripple effect throughout the relationship and restore connection.
One recent study found that couples spend only 35 minutes per week in intimate conversation. Instead couples are emailing, texting, tweeting, and exchanging emotions for emoticons. To avoid pressing the relationship ESC key—or worse hitting DELETE—this fast-paced life calls for the fast-paced strategies detailed in You’re Tearing Us Apart: Twenty Ways We Wreck Our Relationships and Strategies to Repair Them.
This handy handbook for the heart follows a simple, get-to-the-point formula to identify behaviors that tear couples apart, explain why we use these behaviors and how they are destructive, and then provide simple, straight-forward alternatives to mend relationships and make them even more rewarding.
If you’re looking to fix issues without blame, help your relationships or are just curious, this is a great book to read. You’ll find help on just about anything you can think of from hurtful words to financial issues, affairs, and parenting.
The advice is wonderful and unique to each issue. This is not a book that says, ”Be a better person and it will be fixed” at the end of each chapter as so many relationship books do. Instead, you will find advice and exercises tailored to each issue with real-world situations. I highly recommend You’re Tearing Us Apart.
