Is having “somebody to love” the most important thing in your life? Do you constantly believe that with “the right man” you would no longer feel depressed or lonely? Are you bored with “nice guys” who are open, honest, and dependable? If being in love means being in pain, this book was written for you. Therapist Robin Norwood describes loving too much as a pattern of thoughts and behavior, which certain women develop as a response to problems from childhood. Many women find themselves repeatedly drawn into unhappy and destructive relationships with men. They then struggle to make these doomed relationships work. This bestselling book takes a hard look at how powerfully addictive these unhealthy relationships are—but also gives a very specific program for recovery from the disease of loving too much.

I read this book at one of the lowest points in my life. It was so true it hurt, but if you will allow it to inform your soul of its truth.. it will heal. But if not you will hate this book... it’s a love or hate situation... and its dependent on your willingness to admit your addiction to him.... great book.
So enlightening! The steps do sound simple but require a lot of courage. If you want to change, you really have to want to change.
I made it through
There was a time in my life where I had given up hope and was contemplating on ending it all. I was married and gave my all (everything I had in me) to the one I loved, an keep giving my all even when they mo longer loved me. I gave so much from an already empty place than I didn't have any strength to continue to exist. This book gives "women who love too much" the strength, hope, and information they need to work on themselves and better their lives. I recommend this book to all women who love too much and never have anything left for themselves.
