Break Through by Tim Clinton

Relationships. They are a part of everyone's lives: parents, siblings, spouse, friends...the list is endless. The issue is whether your relationship with others is healthy or unhealthy. What I Did For Love is more than just a show tune; it is also a lifestyle of unhealthy relationships for some people. In BREAK THROUGH, Dr. Tim Clinton explores some of the relationships we have with others and what makes them healthy or damaging. He, along with author Pat Springle, have written an easy to read book...yet one that can seem hard as one is confronted by their own reflection in some of the cases given. I know there were a couple of examples written that described me, even to the point of using terms I have only heard myself use. I believe the advice given in the book would most likely be very useful, and it has given me a few things to think about.

Cindy said... all of the above!! :)

Btw, I shredded my journal the same day I wrote it, so I know the terms used were not mine!! LOL! Apparently Dr. Clinton just has some of the same visuals I have when picturing certain people and actions.

This book is a game-changer for those who need help setting boundaries in their life. Some of us try to hard to control others; others of us allow ourselves to be manipulated, even bullied. This book addresses both these dysfunctions but offers real life examples of how to change.

K.L., I agree...and this book came to me just when I needed these concepts re-enforced! I definitely recommend it!

It is 5:20...and the winner is...
