What can I say other than THANK-YOU from the bottom of my heart!!!!
I took this book out of the library in 1997 - and OOPS, I paid the charges, as I never returned it!!!!! Periodically I glance at it, just to laugh at the right choice I made!
Your book turned my life around, upside down, rightside up etc. Exactly what I needed, right at the time I needed something to help me make up my mind.
I had two beautiful children to think about, and many questions. I also had answers to questions I'd never asked myself - your book asked me!!!!
The kicker for me, was when my boyfriend of 6+ years LAUGHED at me for reading your book. He joked and insulted and basically cut down ANY attempt at even looking at OUR life logically. That did it for me!!!! Long gone were my pleadings for counselling, I knew your book made sense that even an imbacile could understand, but still.....he laughed!
I stayed in that poisonous relationship for a few more months (endured another "run away" by him - but this time with definite boundaries for myself and my girls. Eventually, even he couldn't ignore these boundaries - although he tried hard to keep me on "his track". We moved at the end of summer, 1998. THANK YOU, we have never looked back!!!!
Our life is awesome! I've stayed away from any relationship that is not strictly friendship. My girls want me to date, but I won't until I feel my girls and I are ready to take that "leap of faith" again. Their dad, as usual, doesn't pay any more/less attention to them than he did living a short distance away - WE DID THE RIGHT THING!!!!! NO MORE BROKEN HEARTS for any of us.
THANKS for taking the time and effort in applying your obvious talent and expertise to an area that really needed to be explored! As much as he laughed then, I can guarantee you, I'VE LAUGHED 1000 TIMES MORE!.
