- Are you reluctant to tell your partner what you really want or need?
- When you get what you’ve asked for…do you still feel dissatisfied?
- Is it difficult for you to accept kind gestures, gifts, or compliments from your partner?
Many men and women know how to give love, but many more undermine their relationships by never learning how to accept love. We don’t always realize how we reject appreciation and affection, or help and guidance from our romantic partners. But, until we understand the meaning behind our behavior, our relationships stand to suffer.
Harville Hendrix Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt Ph.D. taught couples how to create loving, long-lasting relationships in their New York Times bestsellers, Getting the Love You Want and Keeping the Love You Find. Yet, they found themselves on the brink of divorce before they learned a powerful lesson that saved their marriage. Now, they bring awareness to one of the most complicated issues facing couples today, receiving love from your partner.
In Receiving Love, you will learn how to break the shackles of self-rejection — which likely began in childhood, when your caretakers unintentionally failed to nurture you — and embrace real intimacy. Drawing on their renowned expertise, the wide clinical experience of Imago therapists, and their own personal experience as a married couple, Harville and Helen offer detailed, sensitive advice on how to turn a relationship between two well-meaning, yet misunderstood individuals, into a true, everlasting partnership.
