They DO help though, don't they?
So, the latest on my quest has been my determination not to make the same mistakes I made in my marriage. I realize that I acted or reacted the way I did simply because I didn't know better.
First on my list, how to communicate better with men.
Yes, men are from mars, etc. and I can understand that we're never going to speak the same languages. I also realize that much of how we act is based on what we have learned from interactions with other people. The problem is: if we continue to act based on the past, the past may very well continue into the future.
The first book that I am pouring through is Make Every Man Want You (or Make Yours Want You More): How to Be So Damn Irresistible You'll Barely Keep From Dating Yourself! by Marie Forleo.
I wasn't that fond of the title since it sounds like a desperate attempt to land a man. Amazon had lots of great reviews on it so I bought it, despite the title.
I am amazed. The book is saying basically the exact same things I have been learning about myself in A Course in Miracles!
The only way to be better in a relationship is to heal your relationship with YOURSELF!The rest, i.e. communication with men, will happen automatically.
My readers, you know how I love ACIM, but I do find it difficult to apply to my life in a practical way. In my struggle, I began to search for something else. Whammo! Here is the Course, in another form.
Ok, God, I get it!
Apparently I am on the right track. Yay!
