Publisher's Summary

Do you find it difficult to maintain a successful romantic relationship? Do you see the same behavior patterns emerge in your relationships from time to time? Are you constantly worried that everything will end in a heartbreak? Is it possible to predict in advance the probability of a relationship's success or failure?

Whether we are aware of it or not, our childhood experiences play a huge role in producing the type of people we become. The relationships we experience as children, with our parents or other primary caregivers, have a profound effect on how we react to situations throughout our lives and how we interact with the people around us.

As young children, we instinctively respond to the type of love and support offered by our parents or carers. While a strong bond with our primary caregiver is critical to our development in these early years, any difficulties resulting from this attachment can lead to problems with relationships and self-image in later life. In fact, dysfunctional or incorrect dysfunctional attachment patterns can lead us to make poor emotional choices or enter dysfunctional and unstable relationships that can be characterized by violence, oppression, or submission.

Human relationships can give rise to the constant presence of fear of abandonment, associated with controlling behaviors, a continuous search for reassurance, emotional hypervigilance, and sometimes, even emotional blackmail. Whether you like it or not, attachment styles inevitably determine intimate relationships between people. Knowing what they are and managing them efficiently guarantees you a positive and stable vision of your relationships for life.

If you are tired of living a life full of complicated and painful relationships and would like to learn to cultivate them in healthy and safe places, scroll up and click on the "buy now" button.

Not pleased with this selection

The content is a bit more elementary than expected, the audio sounds like a digital reader and the text sounds as if it needs quite a bit of editing.

I wish I had read this sooner...

This book hit me hard. It explained in depth what and why I had experienced these feelings that caused the very sad breakup of of my relationship. I highly recommend reading this book if you suddenly feel like withdrawing from your love and can’t for the life of you figure out why.

Garbage

Some kind of AI - a robotic narration which half way through started quoting from unrelated medical text (sutures!). Avoid.

Robotic and meaningless

Narrator is a computer. Random quotes about god and a chapter about physical wounds? It made no sense. Far better books available.
