In this supportive and straightforward guide, Lundy Bancroft, the author of Why Does He Do That?, and communication specialist JAC Patrissi offer a way for women to practically take stock of their relationships and move forward, with or without their partners. Women involved in chronically frustrating or unfulfilling relationships will learn to:
Tell the difference between a healthy-yet-difficult relationship and one that is really not working
Recognize the signs that their partner has a serious problem
Stop waiting to see what happens and make their own growth the top priority
Prepare for life without their partner, even as they keep trying to make the relationship work
All women should read this, especially young women who are dating or of dating age. These lessons are tremendously helpful and valuable. Gift this to any young woman you care about, especially if they seem to have tumultuous relationships.
