Are you waiting for someone to change back into the person you fell in love with? Do you fear you won’t find anyone better for you if you leave or let go? Are you confused about what went wrong? This guide outlines ways to make your relationships healthier and, more importantly, how to tell when things have gone bad. An abusive, dysfunctional, or simply wrong-for-you relationship can be as draining and bad for your health as an affinity for junk food.
If you’re like most people, you’re probably hungry for a good, meaningful, fulfilling relationship. Though it’s easy to figure out that something needs to change, you may be having trouble figuring out what to do. In Giving Up Junk-Food Relationships, author Donna Barnes uses multiple choice quizzes, check lists, how-to lists, and more to lay out methods for determining what kinds of junk food are affecting your relationships. You can learn how to
• recognize and stop destructive dating habits;
• spot and avoid waving junk-food (red) flags;
• distinguish true love from true lust;
• tell if you’re in a bad relationship and how to call it quits;
• be comfortable being alone; and
• handle rejection gracefully.
Start making healthy relationship decisions and improve your most important long-term relationship: the one with yourself.
