Powerful, poignant and beautifully written...
"The person who betrayed me the most was me. That’s why it hurt so much. When we take on the role of the caretaker, we try to love ourselves through loving others or try to change others through our love because we fall in love with the fantasy and the potential of who they could be. This leads us to make a lot of compromises, but these are not true compromises; they are self-betrayals. It’s not the transgressions of others that most hurt; it’s the transgressions that we commit against ourselves in service of others that hurt." – page 166, THE BIGGEST BETRAYAL
I needed to share this quote from David's book as this is what really hit home for me in taking in this brilliantly written and soulfully shared journey. David has a way of expressing his own self discoveries of pain and sadness, hurt and emotional upheaval... and not just letting his readers stay there, but also sharing the work that he has done to reclaim his own soul's journey. Sharing his own accounts of the work that he has physically and mentally done to help heal himself along the way.
David shares with his readers the steps he recognized needed to be taken with what was happening within his life. To acknowledge that he was, at many times, his own creation of resistance and enabling of his own pain that was being felt through his relationship(s). In offering not just the stories and the dramas, but also the work that we each can and need to do. Sharing what is needed to be done, when we're willing to take the steps to heal the wounds of being a human in relationship with other humans no matter what gender, culture or social narrative we embody.
Easy to read, but worth taking the time to savour the stories and practice the recommended practices that he offers in each chapter. If you want to have a healthy relationship with yourself or anyone else, this is a must-read for everyone.
