Many desire an emotionally intimate relationship and yet react to the prospect by pulling away. They do this to obscure their true selves for one of two reasons. They fear rejection if they are to honestly reveal themselves to another. Or, it may be because of a foreboding sense that their identity will be taken away if they truly open up to another. In either case, by pulling away they make themselves seem aloof and guarded and that makes rejection all the more likely. When it happens, their conviction that intimacy is not possible for them is reinforced. For those caught in this web or for those who know people who are, author Jill P. Weber, PhD, a clinical psychologist, explains why a capacity for intimacy is not a fixed quality, but a skill to be developed and refined. This book is the fourth in her Relationship Formula Workbook series. Weber shows how with practice it is possible to foster fulfilling relationships not only with romantic partners, but with family members, friends and coworkers. She draws on years of experience in her practice to layout doable strategies that fundamentally change an individual's ability to find genuine emotional rapport.
Romantic breakups inflict the greatest trauma of our lives-and their wounds can be felt for years to come. How we heal-or fail to heal-from romantic trauma has a profound effect on our future relationships: Will we act out of unresolved emotional patterns, triggered by painful memories and unhealthy reactions, or will we find healthy, healing relationships that build on the best of who we are? Healthy relationships develop from inner healing and self-acceptance. This brief, easy to read workbook-the first in a series of four teaching the reader how to engage healthy relationships-guides the reader through a five-step process of insight, healing, and recovery from breakups: Accept your need to let go. Understand how to let go. Take your emotional life seriously. Create a life without your partner. Work on your relationship with yourself. Based on the latest research, these steps help the reader identify dysfunctional relationship patterns, find internal peace, work through difficult emotions, break out of negative-thinking spirals, and find comfort and nurture in alone time. Once this work of self-nurture is accomplished, the next relationship is far more likely to be satisfying and intimate, life giving and joyful, and mutual and sustainable.
Self-esteem is one of the most elusive goals in the human experience. We are often limited not by what others decide but by what we tell ourselves we can't accomplish. We wouldn't let others treat us so badly, so why do we do it to ourselves? Can this pattern be broken? Absolutely. Identifying negative thoughts and understanding why they aren't reflective of reality builds self-esteem. This easy-to-read workbook guides the reader through a five-step process for overcoming self-doubt and insecurity: Identify specific triggers that make you feel poorly about yourself. 2. Tools for replacing negative with adaptive thinking. 3. Strategies for humanizing your internal critic. 4. A new approach to confronting setbacks. 5. Behavioral exercises that will increase your self-esteem now. Packed with useful insights, straightforward guidance, and compassion, this little gem of a book, in fewer than sixty pages, provides a set of easy tools that will help you feel better about yourself. When people feel better about themselves, everything around them can change for the better. On the other hand, when a person becomes harsh and self-critical they are turning on the one person who can do the most to help.
