Proven principles--drawn from real life failures and successes--for building and sustaining a loving, healthy relationship in today's trying times, from celebrity life coach and motivational speaker, Tony Gaskins Jr. After speaking out about how weak and insecure men control women in relationships in 2009 on several globally televised shows, Tony Gaskins launched his career as a life coach and relationship counselor. Since then, Gaskins, who has been a faithful and committed husband for over a decade, has counseled thousands and inspired millions online, becoming one of America's foremost experts on love and relationships. Practical and accessible, and delivered in the empowering, empathetic tone his devoted following has come to love and trust, Make It Work walks you through a series of essential lessons on how to maintain a healthy and long-lasting relationship. Drawing inspiration from the Bible and from his own personal failures and successes, Gaskins offers a framework for how to recognize the right person to settle down with, how to set standards that promote loving relationships--and what to avoid in a successful union. Make It Work arrives as a hopeful response to a culture where breakups and divorces are all too common, and it serves as a vital resource to help your relationship thrive today.

Goodbye, Sweet Girl - A Story of Domestic Violence and Survival (Paperback): Kelly Sundberg Goodbye, Sweet Girl - A Story of Domestic Violence and Survival (Paperback)
Kelly Sundberg
R320 R246 Discovery Miles 2 460 Save R74 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"In her stunning memoir, Kelly Sundberg examines the heart-breaking bonds of love, detailing her near decade-long marriage's slide into horrific abuse. Sundberg shares her own confusions, fears and empathy for her violent husband, even as she comes to realize he will never change. This is an immensely courageous story that will break your heart, leave you in tears, and, finally, offer hope and redemption. Brava, Kelly Sundberg."-Rene Denfeld, author of The Child Finder "A fierce, frightening, soulful reckoning-Goodbye, Sweet Girl is an expertly rendered memoir that investigates why we stay in relationships that hurt us, and how we survive when we leave them. Kelly Sundberg is a force. She has written the rare book that has the power to change lives."-Christa Parravani, author of Her: A Memoir In this brave and beautiful memoir, written with the raw honesty and devastating openness of The Glass Castle and The Liar's Club, a woman chronicles how her marriage devolved from a love story into a shocking tale of abuse-examining the tenderness and violence entwined in the relationship, why she endured years of physical and emotional pain, and how she eventually broke free. "You made me hit you in the face," he said mournfully. "Now everyone is going to know." "I know," I said. "I'm sorry." Kelly Sundberg's husband, Caleb, was a funny, warm, supportive man and a wonderful father to their little boy Reed. He was also vengeful and violent. But Sundberg did not know that when she fell in love, and for years told herself he would get better. It took a decade for her to ultimately accept that the partnership she desired could not work with such a broken man. In her remarkable book, she offers an intimate record of the joys and terrors that accompanied her long, difficult awakening, and presents a haunting, heartbreaking glimpse into why women remain too long in dangerous relationships. To understand herself and her violent marriage, Sundberg looks to her childhood in Salmon, a small, isolated mountain community known as the most redneck town in Idaho. Like her marriage, Salmon is a place of deep contradictions, where Mormon ranchers and hippie back-to-landers live side-by-side; a place of magical beauty riven by secret brutality; a place that takes pride in its individualism and rugged self-sufficiency, yet is beholden to church and communal standards at all costs. Mesmerizing and poetic, Goodbye, Sweet Girl is a harrowing, cautionary, and ultimately redemptive tale that brilliantly illuminates one woman's transformation as she gradually rejects the painful reality of her violent life at the hands of the man who is supposed to cherish her, begins to accept responsibility for herself, and learns to believe that she deserves better.

"For those looking for a smart, no-bullshit, effective guide to finding love, look no further."-Esther Perel, author of Mating in Captivity "While I'm not sure what Carrie Bradshaw would have made of today's new world of dating, I do know this: armed with Love Rules, she would have figured it all out in one season."-Sarah Jessica Parker SHERYL SANDBERG EMPOWERED WOMEN TO LEAN IN ARIANNA HUFFINGTON ENCOURAGED THEM TO THRIVE NOW, JOANNA COLES GUIDES THEM ON THEIR MOST IMPORTANT JOURNEY: FINDING LOVE Just as there is junk food, there is junk love. And like junk food, junk love is fast, convenient, attractively packaged, widely available, superficially tasty-and leaves you hungering for more. And both junk food and junk love require enormous amounts of willpower to resist. Social media and online dating sites have become the supermarkets of our relationship lives. You have to wade through rows of cupcakes and potato chips to find the produce aisle, where those relationships grounded in intimacy and trust live-the ones worth your investment. A diet book for romantic relationships, Love Rules first asks women to re-assess the way they think about their relationships, and then helps them use that newfound awareness to navigate their love lives more successfully in this very modern, fast-paced-and often lonely-digital age. In these pages leading media exec and former Editor in Chief of Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire Joanna Coles provides a series of simple guidelines for finding worthwhile love: fifteen rules-love "hacks." She also explains how to use dating apps effectively to expand real world connections and how to avoid DADD-dating attention-deficit disorder, where the tantalizing promise of someone better appears to be only the next swipe away. Love Rules will enable you to identify what you want in a relationship, when you should pursue it, and how to find it.

'HOW TO FIX A BROKEN HEART PROVIDES THE VALIDATION, COMFORT AND HOPE ANYONE WHO IS HEARTBROKEN DESPERATELY NEEDS.' ESTHER PEREL, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE STATE OF AFFAIRS AND MATING IN CAPTIVITY Every one of us has or will have our heart broken at some point in our lives. Heartbreak, whether it comes in the form of romantic love or through loss, is universal, yet we know so little about how to deal with it. Psychologist Dr Guy Winch imagines how different our lives and our society would be if we paid more attention to this unique emotional pain. Heartbreak can last for days, weeks, months and even years. Yet while we wouldn't expect someone to go to work or function well with a broken limb, heartbroken people are expected to function in their lives, despite the emotional pain they feel. How to Fix a Broken Heart argues that if we don't understand how heartbreak works, we won't be able to heal it and we are likely to make it worse, which we do, and regularly. Dr Winch reveals how and why heartbreak impacts our brain and our behaviour in dramatic and unexpected ways, regardless of our age. Emotional pain lowers our ability to reason, to think creatively, to problem solve and to function. Recovering from heartbreak always starts with a decision, a determination to move on when our mind is fighting to keep us stuck. We can take control of our lives and our minds and put ourselves on the path to healing. Dr Winch offers a toolkit on how to handle and cope with a broken heart and how to, eventually, move on. 'A great read for anyone going through heartbreak, anyone trying to help someone go through heartbreak, or anyone who simply wants to understand humans better' Tim Urban, creator of Wait But Why?

"Don't think that your wife has placed waste-paper baskets in the rooms as ornaments."
" "
"Don't forget that very true remark that while face powder may catch a man, baking powder is the stuff to hold him."
Marriage can be a series of humorous miscommunications, a power struggle, or a diplomatic nightmare. Men and women have long struggled to figure each other out--and the misunderstandings can continue well after they've been joined in matrimony. But long before "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus," couples turned to self-help booklets such as "How to Be a Good" "Husband "and "How to Be a Good Wife," two historic advice books that are now delightfully reproduced by the Bodleian Library.
The books, originally published in the 1930s for middle-class British couples, are filled with witty and charming aphorisms on how wives and husbands should treat each other. Some advice is unquestionably outdated--"It is a wife's duty to look her best. If you don't tidy yourself up, don't be surprised if your husband begins to compare you unfavorably with the typist at the office"--but many other pieces of advice are wholly applicable today. They include such insightful sayings as: "Don't tell your wife terminological inexactitudes, which are, in plain English, lies. A woman has wonderful intuition for spotting even minor departures from the truth"; "After all is said and done, husbands are not terribly difficult to manage"; or "Don't squeeze the tube of toothpaste from the top instead of from the bottom. This is one of the small things of life that always irritates a careful wife."
Entertaining and charmingly illustrated, "How to Be a Good Husband" and "How to Be a Good Wife"offer enduringly useful advice for all couples, from the newly engaged to those celebrating their golden anniversary.
