Love Is Not for Cowards
How Understanding your Past Can Transform your RelationshipBook - 2007
When two people in a relationship are overwhelmed by conflicts that seem unsolvable they often believe that it is due to a lack of love. But this is the moment when we should stop blaming our partner and take a look at ourselves! Love is Not For Cowards is a book about daring to love. About daring to share our inner feelings and thoughts with our partner without worrying about their reactions. Unfortunately, many people believe that conflicts should be avoided at all costs, as they are the sign of an unhealthy relationship. Paradoxically this often leads to a breakdown instead of the development of a deeper relationship. Leading Danish psychotherapist Birgit Weber believes the fear of revealing our true selves stems from our childhood. It is these fears that lie behind all the misunderstandings we may experience with our partner. In this highly accessible book, Birgit Weber shows how we can refine our reactions and feelings without expecting that our partner should accept these. It is only when we accept ourselves that we can become a whole person and thereby be a better partner. This book is at once confronting, insightful, reassuring and exhilarating. On the challenging journey of love and self-exploration, Love Is Not for Cowards is a valuable companion.
