Sherry Gaba has written a powerful and yet easy to read book on the prison of relationship addiction. This books takes the reader through the sources and causes of this type of addiction. Unpeeling the layers not just of one's personal journey of relationships that have been founded in misunderstandings of one's needs, but the historical and inherited designs of relationships, we see that we may have made decisions about what relationships are by watching our grandparents and parents. She gently lets the reader understand that dysfunctional or unwise relationship choices may have come from our background as well as our own actions.
This book is a great addition to the study that any person in recovery could read to help them dig a little deeper into, what for many of us in substance recovery, is a co-occurring disorder. The exercises and affirmations are a great way to do some personal investigation at an emotional level, while the intellectual part of you absorbs the words.
Add this book to your library and read it! You will discover more about your self- damaging and self-denying patterns and learn that. . . it's time to put the focus on you and not the object of your obsession.
