Do I Have to Give Up Me to Be Loved by You?
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is one of my top books i enjoyed and it was eye-opening. It has helped with the resentment from growing up in a family that did not validate, recognize or acknowledge their children. We were there to make Mom happy. This is a book to read if you think that you have to BE a certain way in order to get love, attention, or approval. It does not Blame anybody, which was important to me. It explains that maybe you didn't grow up with horrible parents, but that your parents might have their own issues and you don't have to continue the same pattern with your spouse, children, friends, co-workers, etc. Wonderful book!
This is a great study of relationship dynamics covering many deep seated problems. Just knowing how to recognize when and why you are in a power struggle, or the many forms of control that we all use can be very helpful in repairing a relationship by learning where the pain is coming from. Be prepared to own your part in all of it.
I have recommended this book to friends and family more times than I can count! I have given it as a Wedding/Engagement gift. When I read this book in the late eighties my marriage was in trouble. This book along with a lot of work saved my marriage which ended up being the reason for my being until my beloved husband passed away this year after fifty glorious years together. I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone that wants to learn how to communicate well.k
