A lot of the theories in the book are "business" related examples, but applying them (and he shows you how to do this) into your personal life is so very helpful when you're left with the "why" and "how did this happen?" questions screwing with your mind--
It's helped me so much to just let go of a lot of the anger and unresolved questions I have. I highly recommend it if you're going through the same phase I'm in right now--past the anger and into the "why" phase of letting go...
I did read Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and it has changed my life with all my relationships.
I haven't read Necessary Endings, but I will look for it.
"When you can tell the story and it doesn't bring up any pain, you know it is healed." - Iyanla Vanzant, Broken Pieces
It is helpful in ending relationships and understanding the need to end these..
There are many "business" relationships he talks about, but he also refers to personal relationships. It's really helped me to understand the need to "let go"..I have not only my marriage to let go of, but a very toxic relationship with my mother, which has been more difficult lately
I would love to hear what you guys think about this book once you've started it
I wish I could get my husband to read it. He is the one who doesn't realize the ending is necessary and won't help us get there. I don't have the strength to do it alone. I read the first chapter and the man who is making the choices is strong.
Does he address the beaten down businessman who has nowhere to do and no resources to get there????
I would recommend it a thousand times over.
He also wrote an excellent book called Integrity.
He shows examples of how people like this have changed their paths and gone a different direction after ending something that was going nowhere...and how fearful and scary it was to do that, but they did and life became better for it.
I heard about this one and am thinking of buying it--I just got "Safe People" along with the workbook from Barnes and Noble and love it so far! It's going to help me stop repeating the same pattern and picking the wrong guys, I hope
The other books, Boundaries, ARE Christian based--as well as many of his other books.
