Who this book is for?
This book is for women who love too much; a woman who loves too much is the one who:
- always finds excuses for his moodiness, bad temper and indifference,
- doesn’t really like his basic characteristics and behavior, but who always acts so loving hoping he’ll change to the better because of that,
- lets her relationship jeopardize her emotional and physical well being,
- feels great pain and dissatisfaction, but still can’t end the relationship,
- reads self-help books trying to find ways to help him, instead of trying to help herself.
- This book looks hard at the reasons why some women become obsessed with their partner and relationship and why they usually find unloving partners and build unhealthy relationships. The root of such obsession is fear, and not love.
“We who love obsessively are full of fear – fear of being alone, fear of being unlovable and unworthy, fear of being ignored or abandoned or destroyed. We give our love in the desperate hope that the man with whom we’re obsessed will take care of our fears. Instead, our fears – and our obsession – deepen until giving love in order to get it back becomes a driving force in our lives. And because our strategy doesn’t work we try, we love even harder. We love too much.”
