This books is very timely since I am coming off a long and painful relationship. Many self awareness truism like:

When we forget that God loves us, we strike out in search of a human lover to fulfill our needs to be loved.

Acknowledge your feeling by saying:
I forgive myself if my perception is inaccurate but right now I am feeling ______

That’s what surrender is all about – simply stop doing things that make you miserable, crazy, unhappy, self hating and neurotic. When you stop abusing yourself in
This book allowed me the skill to be able to move on from a 'VALLEY'. To be able to acknowledge my feelings/emotions, live with them, get rid of them, and ultimately move on. Praising my God all the way.

I've been going through A LOT this past year, with the past few months being roughest; hence why I picked up this book. The title, "Living Through the Meantime" caught my eye because I needed help doing just that; living. Too, the subtitle describes exactly what I'm going through.

Companion to In the Meantime with several helpful additional exercises. If you only buy on of the set, get In the Meantime. But if you are still in the meantime like I was this book can help you terrifically.

I loved the analogy of the house, as it gave an excellent picture of developing a strong, stable core foundation. Only once the foundation is solid, can a structure be established on top of it. Here's to cleaning house!

This book opened my mind. I shifted the focus from "they" to "me". I made me become accountable. And break the chains off my mind and spirit.
