Safe People: How to Find Relationships that are Good for You and Avoid those that Aren't
Safe People How to Find Relationships that are Good for You and Avoid those that Aren't Author:John Townsend, Henry Cloud Too many of us have invested ourselves into relationships that left us deeply wounded. We've been abandoned or taken advantage of, and left with little to show for what we've given. We've lost our sense of security and personal value in the process. And what's worse, we tend to either repeat the same mistakes of judgment over and... more » over... Or else lock the doors of our hearts entirely and throw away the key. Why do we choose the wrong people to get involved with? Is it possible to change? And if so, where does one begin?
Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer solid guidance for making safe choices in relationships, from friendships to romance. They help identify the nurturing people we all need in our lives, as well as ones we need to learn to avoid. Safe People will help you to recognize 20 traits of relationally untrustworthy people. Discover what makes some people relationally safe, and how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You'll learn about things within yourself that jeopardize your relational security. And you'll find out what to do and what not to do to develop a balanced, healthy approach to relationships.« less
Have you ever given your best and gotten the worst in return?
The wounds inflicted by an unsafe person can go deep. If you've ever been in a relationship where you were used, abused or abandoned, then Safe People is for you.
This is a book for anyone who wants to develop healthy relationships with others. You will learn how to identify safe people and how to become a safe person yourself--the kind of person people will want to have as their friend. The authors' advise is biblically based. What I really love about the book is that it is a very person Bible study. It has helped me to understand God's Word. And I feel that I am letting down my guard against people I really need in my life--people who are safe. God wants us to be in relationship with others--that's how he is able to share his love for us.
