"How One of You Can Bring the Two of You Together" suggests a completely different approach to improving a marriage. This audiobook shows that making changes in your marriage by yourself is an effective and low-stress strategy, because you are not at the mercy of your partner's moods, timing, communication skills, or willingness to work. When you make a change in your behavior or your attitude entirely on your own, you can work a miracle in your marriage. "How One of You Can Bring the Two of You Together," you will learn the fundamental shift which takes place in your thinking, from "How much am I giving/How much is my partner giving?" to "How much am I giving/How much am I taking?"--two factors over which you have complete control. Through a series of experiments and exercises suggested in this book, you will have the opportunity to review your relationship, see how others have made subtle changes in their thinking and behavior and reaped great amounts of happiness, and how you can use those same lessons and make your marriage a much happier and satisfying place to be. In this wise and inspiring new audiobook, Page introduces us to the concept of Loving Leadership, and offers specific strategies for shifting your viewpoint, managing resentment, solving nagging problems, and re-establishing intimacy with your spouse. With tangible goals, you can work through your own frustrations to get to new thinking and new actions. The secret in this audiobook which leads you to a successful, gratifying marriage is learning how to balance taking care of yourself and extending good will to your partner. And, Susan Page says, "Deciding to work alone on your relationship gives you enormous power, notpower over your partner, but inner power and personal strength. Working alone on your relationship gives you an unparalleled opportunity to grow."
