Loving Your Partner Without Losing Your Self
by Martha Baldwin Beveridge

Many men and women enter relationships with high hopes and romantic passion, only to find themselves feeling angry, hurt, disappointed, and frustrated. They may begin to doubt whether they’ll ever free themselves from painful patterns and rediscover their passion. The majority of relationship books focus on how partners interact. But the advice offered is often impossible to follow because it ignores two essential issues that each mate must address and master — personal development and boundary healing. Martha Beveridge guides readers toward trusting, committed relationships that allow room for each partner’s individuality.

How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People)
by Meggan Watterson, Lodro Rinzler

Are you trying to find love – and beginning to suspect you’re not looking in the right place? This wise, hip guide gives you a new map for the journey to happiness in relationships of all kinds, starting in your own heart.

Told from the alternating vantage points of authors Meggan Watterson and Lodro Rinzler, How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) reminds us that love isn’t something we have to earn. All of us are deeply and intrinsically worthy of love – not only the love we hope to receive from others, but the love we give to ourselves – and this book offers the insight and practical tools we need to stay firmly grounded in self-love as we ride out the natural (and often stormy) cycles of relationships.

Meggan and Lodro’s unique perspectives as teachers and scholars of Christian mysticism and Buddhism respectively make for a rich and lively dialogue that draws on wisdom sources like the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and the Four Noble Truths, along with funny, revealing stories from their own love lives and their deep friendship with each other. You’ll find guidance for embracing single life, dating with an open heart, and thriving in lasting love; meditations and practices for calm abiding, “disciplined hope,” and connecting to the source of love within you; and tips on everything from sex, self-worth, and nourishing friendships to navigating breakups and learning to truly love yourself. Ultimately, you’ll be able to see your ideal partner in a new light – not as someone who “completes” you, but as someone who mirrors back to you your own wholeness.

Healthy Dependency
by Robert F. Bornstein, Mary A. Languirand

From the psychologist who coined the phrase “healthy dependency”—the first and only book that outlines its four key steps and helps readers understand and use these principles to achieve balance in love, in friendships, with family, and at work.

The research is clear: Too much dependency in our relationships can be a bad thing, but too little dependency is just as bad. Healthy dependency—that flexible middle ground between rigid independence and unhealthy overdependence—is the ability to balance intimacy and autonomy, lean on others while maintaining a strong sense of self, and feel good (not guilty) about asking for help when you need it.

The authors’ studies confirm that healthy dependency brings a wealth of positive effects including:

  • increased satisfaction in love relationships
  • greater likelihood of academic and career success
  • better family communication and improved parenting skills
  • enhanced physical and psychological health

This unique book, meticulously organized and laced throughout with case studies, anecdotes, relationship-style questionnaires, and research findings, draws from the authors’ more than 20 years of research and clinical experience. A valuable guide to achieving healthy relationships between men and women of all ages, it will help readers identify where they are on the relationship continuum, and understand the skills they will need to address in order to strengthen their personal, professional, and family relationships.
