I'm reading a book called "Caring Enough to Confront" by David Augsburger. I got it at church so it does have a christian base to it.

Here is what the back cover says:

Many people try to avoid conflict. but confrontation can be a catalyst for deeper loving care as we learn to integrate our needs and wants with those of others. Caring Enough to Confront will teach you how to build trust, cope with blame and prejudice, and be honest about anger and frustration. You'll learn how to confront with compassion in family, church and work rleationships to resolve conflict in a healthy and healing way.


In life, much of what one grieves one never had.

Love Addiction by Pia Melody, great book, explains the "whys' and how to communicate.


Happy people don't have the best things, they make the best with what they have.

The Emotionally Unavailable Man by Patti Henry.

Half of the book is dedicated to the man, while the other half is written for his significant other.


She packed up her potential and all she had learned and headed out to change a few things.

Deleting messed up post. I should know better than trying to post from my phone on a bumpy train.

What I was trying to write in my previous post(s) was that my WW has this book but I didn't realize it was written for the "unavailable man's" POV. This is good to know. I will borrow it from her.
