Revealing and healing

This book completely opened my eyes for the first time to what I had been doing over and over in my life. I knew it was a pattern but could never figure out why I was doing it or how to stop. With the help of the words of advice plus the exercises that are given, I do believe there is so much hope that I will not only be able to stop my obsessive behavior with my relationships but I also have hope to someday be comfortable with a normal relationship for which I have never known. I believe working with my therapist and some of the other new and healthy concepts I have been practicing, there is great hope for a better tomorrow. I am grateful for the knowledge this book imparted on me and the narrator is also very convincing and speaks with clarity. I listen to this book a few times a week. Thanks for the great book. I give it 5 stars.
