A thoughtful meditation on the true and sometimes dark nature of love.

We tend to treat our sadness individually, as if it were unique and shameful. But, as this book explains, sorrow is intrinsic-and essential-to the very definition of love. By understanding our romantic troubles and griefs, seeing them in their proper context, and appreciating their prevalence, we gain a deeper, more universal insight into the power and complexities of love.A UNIQUE MEDITATION ON THE COMPLEXITIES OF LOVEA CONSOLING TOOLKIT for navigating the despair and heartbreak that come hand in hand with love.ILLUSTRATED WITH FULL COLOR IMAGES THROUGHOUTPART OF THE SCHOOL OF LIFE'S GIFTABLE ESSAYS SERIES other titles include Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person, Why We Hate Cheap Things, and Self-Knowledge.
A great and easy read that explains so much, so efficiently and effectively. I wish I read this 30 years ago at the beginning of my marriage.
