Somehow, our romantic lives have become routine. We negotiate our partners, accept our shortcomings, and defend our relationships against insincere gestures by always acting on the positive thoughts that come into our heads. However, when negative thoughts enter our minds, we are alienated from ourselves. We are unable to be natural and give freely. This behavior fragments what matters most: our relationships. Then, before we know it, we are caught in a vicious cycle where we spend the next week's evening by ourselves, only to feel guilty for not being happy. To overcome this situation, it is important to take stock of our own emotions.
Experts agree that the best way to develop self-compassion is to observe, understand, and accept the parts of our lives that we find difficult. In When God Writes Your Love Story, bestselling authors Eric and Leslie Ludy teach you to increase your compassion, cultivate kindness, and heal yourself and others. Trauma and stress can be tools to help you grow emotionally. But there are times when it is better to shut out the stressors in your life, and tune into the life the Author plows for you.
Coauthors Eric and Leslie Ludy, along with renowned couples psychologist Sherry Klinger, address everything from how to avoid long-term relationships and negative emotions to how to recognize the differences between love and obsession. This timeless and practical guide for blended and same-sex couples explores the inner workings of love and teaches how to master the challenges of two-career relationships, blended families, stepfamilies, and LGBT relationships.
The 'easy' part of love is not about successfully achieving a goal. Rather, love is about giving - to the other person, to yourself, and to God. When God Writes Your Love Story teaches you to love this way. True love exists, and although it may sound strange, it is easier to love than to be loved. These stories remind us that, in this life, we are not meant to focus all of our time on the others. This, of course, is how we end up feeling unloved. d2c66b5586
