Freedom from toxic relationships : moving on from the family, work and relationship issues that bring you down / Avril Carruthers.

By: Carruthers, Avril [author.].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Crows Nest, N.S.W. : Inspired Living/Allen & Unwin, 2011Description: xi, 195 p. ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9781742375069.Subject(s): Self-actualization (Psychology) | Self-realization | Self-acceptance | Interpersonal relationsDDC classification: 158.1 Summary: Toxic relationships come in many guises. That's why they're so hard to pick. Often toxic relationships don't entail physical violence so much as a slow erosion of self esteem, a loss of personal identity, or a growing desire to please friends, partners, family members and others who're impossible to please. Many toxic relationships begin early in childhood, or when we start to form our own personal relationships. Even though we find the courage to move on, if the fallout from these relationships is not dealt with we may end up attracting more of the same. If we can observe patterns in our relationships, we may see that our present and past relationships involve binding ties that remain, even when we wish to move on. Learn how to recognise the manipulative or sweetly corrosive partner, the family dynamics that make Christmas and other get-togethers hell, the nightmare boss. And learn what you can do to leave these painful, destructive patterns behind.
