An Invitation From Gay Hendricks I am thrilled and delighted to offer to you the new edition of Learning To Love Yourself. Revisiting and rewriting the book has been a pleasure from beginning to end. With its new elements, the book comes alive in a whole new way. Looking back over more than three decades to the moment of its conception, I can now see how writing this book changed my life in every way. I first wrote it as an act of love, to share an experience that feels as if it's still transforming me in my very cells. It was my hope that telling about the experience could inspire the same profound life-changes in others. The many thousands of letters, emails and spoken appreciations I've received since then let me know that my hope came true. The experience described in the book revealed the living mystery of love to me, allowing me to feel its sweet power for the first time. Because I suddenly knew what real love felt like, I was able to break free of my pattern of painful relationships with women. Ultimately it helped me find my way to Kathlyn, the love of my life and my wife for the past quarter-century. The new edition is ideal for giving to loved ones (including yourself!) who are on the journey to forgiving, accepting and loving themselves. It tells you how I came to an acceptance and unconditional love of even the most difficult-to-love parts of myself. My fondest wish is that you use it for exactly the same purpose, with exactly the same result.

We all come into this world full of promise and possibility. For some, when born into a healthy and highly functional family, the journey is quite easy, with guideposts and directions given freely. However, that is a very small population of people. Most of us were born into families that were in their own way struggling for independence, accomplishment, safety or security. For the millions of people who grew up in painful families, whether by absent parents, abusive parents, or those who were ill-equipped, noted therapist Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse shows that they do not have to follow a family tradition of compulsion or addiction. In the revised edition of the classic Learning to Love Yourself, Wegscheider-Cruse explains that it is possible to create our own self-worth at any time in our lives, even as adults. She guides readers on a journey to greater self-worth, explaining how to eliminate toxic self-defeating messages, how to choose healthier, new perspectives, and how to reinvent yourself each day open to a world of possibilities.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had spent the past two weeks alone in a cabin in Green Mountain Falls, near Colorado Springs. I had been searching for the answer to one question: how can we bring about change in ourselves and our relationships. I was not satisfied with just spewing accumulated wisdom from my field. #2 I had always asked others for the answers to my questions, but never myself. I decided to ask myself what was the one thing I could do to make my life flow freely and easily, and the answer came immediately: relax and let the energy dance its way through me. #3 I had always resisted my feelings, and in that moment, I decided to stop resisting. I opened myself up to receive the previously unloved parts of myself with love. When I dropped my stance of resistance, I felt totally connected to myself. #4 The problem of resistance is the fundamental issue we face in our psychological growth. We resist our experience, and as a result, we lose our direct connection with life. We yearn for clear, direct experience, but we are not satisfied with watching life through the veil of mind-stuff.

Create a wealth of self-worth. In a black-and-white world, there are two types of people—those who love themselves too much (and walk over everybody else) or hate themselves for failing to achieve goals (and probably end up being taken advantage of by others). But, according to British marital therapist, Andrew G. Marshall, neither has a healthy perception of oneself. This is because the secret to self-esteem does not lie in the extremes of love and hate, but in the middle, in the gray area that teaches us to love ourselves just enough: enough to have love to offer others; enough to be open to receive love from others. Only when this kind of balance is created, can self-love exist. Like no other book on self-esteem ever written, Learn to Love Yourself Enough helps readers walk through life on middle ground by revealing the seven factors that, together, add up to a wealth of self-worth. Examine your relationship with your parents: Discover the six types of child-parent relationships and how to accept the legacy of your past. Find Forgiveness: Debunk the two myths about forgiveness and discover what can be gained from negative experiences. Don't let other people put you down: Recognize the five phases of projection and how understanding our own projections lead to better and happy relationships. Re-program your inner voice: Identify the three kinds of negative thinking that work together to undermine self-confidence and whether they are based on fact or just opinion. Set realistic goals: Learn how perfectionism undermines self-esteem. Re-balance yourself: Understand that problems lurk in the extremes and why the middle way is the most successful way. Conquer Fears and Setbacks: Overcome the day-to-day problems that life and other people throw at us.

Self Love Learn How to Love Yourself Unconditionally Cultivate Self Worth Self Compassion and Self Confidence

If somebody caught you checking out this book right now, peered over your shoulder and asked you, “so what do you want to buy?” how would you answer them? If you’re like most people, you might launch into an explanation that self love is having high self esteem, a roaring sense of self confidence, the belief that you can do anything you want, etc. You may say that you want this book because you want to feel better about who you are and to stop being so hard on yourself. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll say, “nothing!” and get a little red in the face. What could be more embarrassing than reading a self help book about learning to love yourself, right? Well – why? Why is it so strange a topic and why does this book even exist at all? Do you ever see books about, “how to love your wife/husband” or “how to love your kids”? My theory is that we live in a world where it’s completely normal to be hard on ourselves. Think about it for a minute. Every one of us has experienced ruthless competitiveness, rejection from those we love and admire, disappointments in our abilities, and the constant message from the media that our lives, and by extension we ourselves, are just no good unless we’re constantly buying the latest gadgets, dieting or accumulating wealth. We like to call this way of treating ourselves “realistic.” Maybe we believe that it keeps us on our toes, always hungry to improve and “fix” ourselves. Maybe we just assume that love is something we have to earn – but only once we’re awesome enough! Here, I’m going to ask you how much you love yourself. Be honest. I won’t come peek into your head and check if you’re lying but – don’t lie anyway! Rate your self love on a scale of 1 to 10. One represents the feeling you reserve for dog poo on the bottom of your shoe or that particular wave of emotions directed at people who loudly crinkle packets in cinemas. Five is so-so. You don’t have a massive crush on you or anything, but you wouldn’t exactly invite you out for dinner. Ten is big, fat, extra-cheesy, extra gooey self love of the highest order (and yes, you’ll be closer to that 10 by the time you reach the end of the 6 weeks) Here’s how to use this book: The book is divided into 6 weeks covering the main pillars of self-love, and in each of those weeks you’ll find 3 separate sections to sink your teeth into: 1. Introspection - My favorite section; here we'll do a guided self analysis. Self enquiry is the most powerful tool to personal growth. 2. A New Habit - Positive small habits add up over time. In this section we’ll look at ways to taking the things you read and learn during these 6 weeks and making them actually come alive in your own life by developing new small and realistic habits. 3. Taking Action - After 7 days of trying on a new habit, you should be feeling pretty good. This section will be about making a single serious action or decision that reflects our new sense of self-love each day. I would suggest starting each week on a Monday just for the ease of it, saving your big changes for the weekend, when people typically have more time. But it’s up to you.
