There are tons of problems I hear when it comes to why relationships don't work. More times than not these "problems" are just excuses for our individual failures, inadequacies, and or insecurities that cause us to not be willing to fight for the success of a relationship, these include the classic pet peeves and personality clashes. However there are those situations that are flagrant misuses of trust, wanton acts of selfishness, and downright physical or mental abuse. All too often with these problems, we being overly critical of ourselves forget the value of our self-worth, and convince ourselves into believing that these types of relationships are natural and we don't or can't do any better.
I am not a relationship counselor nor do I have any psychology degrees, however, this book is aimed to help those reading it get over themselves and realize that sometimes we are our own biggest obstacles in finding and maintaining meaningful relationships. Successful relationships require more than just being in the right place at the right time to meet the person of your dreams, it takes a correcting of the mind set that everything will be perfect at all times and the coming to realize that every relationship will have it's ups and downs, it's how one responds during those down times that usually plays a key factor in whether a relationship turns out successful. It's necessary to remember that fairy-tales are just that; utopian ideologies that most frequently never materialize and leave the one who rested their hopes on this ideal, in shambles because of what they've been brainwashed to believe by the absurd representations of relationships in the media. This book is also aimed at those who've gone so far as to convince themselves that they don't deserve out of a relationship and stay and continue to take the abuse whether it be mental or physical. We all need a reality check at some point so that we can be reminded that we're worth it, NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE SAYS. WE'RE WORTH COMMITMENT, WE'RE WORTH FAITHFULNESS, WE DESERVE RESPECT! But the only way to get that from others is to first learn to give that to ourselves.
