Profoundly Helpful My friend has an old edition of Dr. Richo's "How to be an Adult" that she treasures, but it wasn't until this book came onto my desk that I discovered how relevant his teachings were to me. Even though my spouse and I have been together for nearly a decade, I struggle with letting old issues lie and project them into current problems. I do think I'm getting better now because of this book's clear guidance. The 5 A's in particular are simple, beautiful, and easy to take home: Attention, Acceptance, Appreciation, Affection, and Allowance (for your partner to be his/her self). I have approached several books to improve the relationsships in my life and each have illuminated different ideas that have worked for me. Similar to Impossible Love, this book addresses transference of feelings, like obsessive love, into situations that are not exactly... ideal to say the least/ This book teaches you how to deal with the feelings by changing the thought patterns so they don't get the best of you!
