” ‘Why You Do The Things You Do’ is about how our attachment styles growing up in our family of origin impact the way we think, act, and interact with others in our current life, and how we can learn to love and be loved in healthier ways. It incorporates a Christian perspective on how our relationship with God can heal us from our past brokenness and help us understand and embrace what healthy relationships look like. The book provides great insight on why we engage in destructive and self-sabotaging patterns, faulty assumptions about ourselves, others, and God, and how that all plays out in our fears, insecurities, and problems. It is an easy and directive read as it gives step by step of how to change how you relate to others by learning how to handle conflict and improve your communication based on your relationship/attachment style, which it helps you determine through an assessment of yourself.
This book would be recommended for anyone experiencing relationship difficulties and searching for a way to heal the wounds of the past that stop you from moving forward and cultivating healthy wholesome relationships.”
