Additional Information

You’re probably familiar with the old saying, once bitten, twice shy. It describes a painful uncertainty many of us feel every day as we try to engage with other people. Acts of betrayal from our pasts can lead us into long cycles of wariness and mistrust. An inability to trust wisely can lead us to loneliness and isolation, or worse—putting our trust in the wrong people too easily.

The good news is that the ability to trust is both a choice and a skill that you can develop. You do not have to be controlled by the past. To a child, trust is a feeling that comes and goes, always under the influence of other people. Only as an adult can you learn how and when to trust more wisely. This book is a warm and friendly guide to achieving greater self-confidence and deeper levels of intimacy and trust.

Helped along by the book’s exercises and ideas for self-reflection, you’ll begin to develop new patterns of trust. Start by getting comfortable trusting your own instincts. Then, experiment with developing relationships based on mutual trust and curiosity. Learn from and then let go of old betrayals that have impaired your trust-building skills, and approach the rest of your life with a renewed sense of purpose and belonging.

This was bought for a loved one who had suffered thru broken trust in previous relationship that was causing issues and anxieties etc in new relationships and she didn't want someone else's past transgressions be placed on shoulders of new love that had done nothing wrong and didn't want the fear and anxiety caused from past relationship to take away from enjoying and savoring and trusting in new relationship but that is easier said than done... We got this book in hopes it might help at least a little bit (couldn't afford counseling)... she said this book helped DRAMATICALLY a LOT! That is more than we even expected or hoped for in a book. It made a bigger positive difference for her than in some other people I've known in similar situations who had taken the going to therapy route to be honest!

highly recommended book!
I bought this book when I was looking for advice on better relationships. This has a psychological perspective to building relationships and does a nice job giving one perspective on new ways to look at your relationships through visual diagrams and surveys. However, some of the examples came off as blatantly sexist, especially the example with a woman who tells her husband to stop wasting their money. It was trying to demonstrate standing up for oneself, but when it concludes with "now she is free from oppressive male authority" it just comes off as sexist.

She really does have good advice on relationships, but if examples like the one above would offend you and stop you from furthering your reading then perhaps looking somewhere else might be best.
From the description it didn't say it was mostly about trust issues due to childhood events. I was hoping more so in the relationship sense with a significant other that trust needs to be built up to again. Other than that, it has been a good book.
