many of us have invested ourselves into relationships where things have
gone wrong. You may have experienced being judged, manipulated
controlled, or worse. The impact of being with an unsafe person can be
damaging to your confidence, your trust in others, and even your health.
And what's more, we either repeat the same mistakes of judgment over
and over, or else simply give up on trying to have great, authentic
relationships again. We get busy instead.
Why do we choose the wrong people to get involved with? Is it possible to change? And if so, where does one begin?
Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer solid guidance for making safe
choices in relationships, from family to friendship, romance and work.
They help identify the healthy and growing people we all need in our
lives, as well as ones we need to learn to avoid. Safe People will
help you to recognize twenty traits of relationally untrustworthy
people and discover what makes some people relationally safe, as well as
how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You'll learn about things within
yourself that jeopardize your relational security, and you'll find out
how to develop a balanced approach to relationships.
