Choosing the Best Relationship Books
You can find many relationship books on the market, and that's a good thing.
Sometimes the advice in a well-written book can be just the thing that will help your relationship stand
the test of time.
There are books on every sort of relationship problem that may turn up and they are generally written by licensed counselors who have a lot of experience helping people work things out.
Take Heed to Some of the Information
Of course the best of relationship books won't help you if you do not do the projects or take the advice laid out in the book, only if that advice pertains to you.
For instance, a book on living happily with your mate in spite of their affliction with mental illness might give you step-by-step plans for identifying danger signs and triggers.
If you read the plans, feel inspired and then lay the book aside; you will not have improved your relationship. That will only happen when you implement the plans.
Experience Can be the Best Teacher
When picking book on relationships, look for those which are written from a spiritual perspective similar to your own. Also, read a wide variety of books, including those written from the fire of personal experience.
Sometimes the most accessible advice does not come from a person with a PhD, but from those who have lived through it. Their advice may not be couched in psychological terms, but it will be from the heart and useful.
There are Different Ways to Get the Information
If buying the book you want will put you in a financial bind, remember to look in the public library. If they don't have it on the shelves, they will be happy to find it for you through an inter-library loan.
Remember books are written by people like us. It is some else opinion. Nothing is usually written in stone. Take from these books what applies to you.
