Personally, I love short “foreword” sections. I just want enough to entice me to further read on in the mammoth books I often read. Stormie Omartian’s words did just that. The foreword promises that the reader will find loving relationships that are fulfilling and satisfying, which is what each reader wants —I’m assuming. Omartian delves briefly into a dark family history that contributed to feelings of being unloved in the present. While my childhood wasn’t the absolute best, I’m a firm believer that a child’s upbringing isn’t the sole reason for that person feeling unloved. I think that life experiences overall are much greater contributors. If I can discover repressed memories/experiences and work through them, which in turn create happier relationships for myself then bring it on!
My coworker bought me “Attachments” by Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Gary Sibcy for Christmas, and I’m so stoked to start reading it. I was planning on starting the book come Jan. 1, but 1) I couldn’t wait and 2) I finished the book I thought was going to last me until Dec. 31.
This book has brought my coworker an abundance of knowledge, and I’m hoping that I’ll begin to understand why I am the way I am and at the same time learn to understand others better.
I’m planning on blogging about this book chapter by chapter about how I see it manifesting in my life and the realizations I come to. I’ve heard great things about this book from numerous people, and I don’t want to spoil anything.
