You have likely purchased this ebook because you or probably someone you know is struggling with a difficult relationship. I am assuming this is not because of depression or anxiety, a personality disorder, a come down (rebound) from a drug binge, alcoholism or some medical or psychiatric condition. I am assuming this is a (probably longer-term) psychological condition, so I am going to talk about communication and relationships in this context. If there are other “conditions” lurking in the background, these need to be identified and dealt with separately, possibly before reading this ebook, because they will negatively affect a relationship. They are outside the scope of this ebook, so deal with them first if they exist, or possibly concurrently if you have approval from your therapist. If you have any doubt, ask your local provider (Ph.D., M.D., D.O., etc.), or at least talk this over with friends. Let us make sure we are dealing only with your “psychological” space.
