This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.
Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.
Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run away, but instead pushing through and reaching a deeper more meaningful relationship.
This book is as deep as you’ll make it. It is an easy read. But if you follow the format and read 1 chapter each day, and go through the exercises, it is a very effective book.
Thank you to WaterBrook Press for providing this book for review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
