    Change Your Mindset, Not Your Man

    This book is full of wonderful ideas to help a marriage become stronger, to help bond two people with two different backgrounds and ideas. Even if a couple is raised similarly, there is one factor to take into account. A woman is completely different than a man with different needs. Sally Watkins says, "Many women feel that the way to fix a problem is to confront their man, reveal their feelings, and ask for what they want to change." This simply doesn't work. We tend to believe in the "happily ever after" stories, believing there is a perfect man out there for us, and that life will be wonderful. Where did this idea come from? Fairytales, romantic novels, and romantic movies! Sally's first chapter is called: Fairytale Fantasy-Busted.

    I love what Sally said in her book. "The purpose of a relationship is not to make you happy-no one person can or should be expected to do that-but rather to help you evolve and grow in character and strength and support your being in the world." What a wonderful thought! This book will help women solve a wide range of problems. The secret is by changing your mindset, not your man. You "will experience a decrease in anger and disappointment" as you learn to understand yourself more fully.
