Relationships can be tough, and none of us are experts. Add the challenges of falling victim to manipulation to the normal complexities of our connection with others, and many of us may find we are tired of struggling to make our relationships work. A solitary life is rarely a satisfying one, however. Learning to identify and cope with manipulation can reintroduce us to the pleasure we were meant to experience when sharing our lives.
Authentic relationships require us to honor our own needs and truths as well as those of others. This book encourages us to take back the power we may have relinquished by being manipulated, allowing us to regain the joy that can be found in healthy interdependence.
