    I read a good one called " Breaking Your Addiction to a Person".. It really put into perspective how some of the things we do in a destructive relationship are based off an addiction...

    Steve Harvey's book was great. It wasn't overly deep but then, that was the point, wasn't it? He used a just-right amount of humor in it.

    Yeah, i like it. It provided alot of new insight as well as some stuff i already knew. But it created a guideline for me, as a young woman, to go by.

    What Women Want
    What Men Want
    -These two books are written by the same authors and have a lot of statistics and polls (which I like)

    Love Languages
    ***Highly recommended. Not only did it help me understand my SO better. But it also helped me understand my relationships w/ my family.

    All of these books are Christian based. I enjoyed them so much that I took notes while reading them. I know, I'm a little odd!! )

    A great one is "The Dance of Anger" by Harriet Lerner. I remember actually hightlighting passages from that book and re-reading from time to time. She's also written several other "Dance of..." books as well.

    "The power of now" and
    "Road less traveled" are excellent books on Love, relationships and spiritual growth.

    Hey there....noticed your story and want to tell you something! I was raised in KS. too! I totally know what you mean about being a 'sad' fact! I moved to a larger town with more to do, larger selection of people and stuff. Made living there a little better! Now I'm in OK. Been here all my adult life. Pretty cool here. I just joined this site today. Don't know how often I'll check it. But.... appeals to be safe. Maybe we'll chat!
