I have been reading this book and it is amazing. It is more than just about food and weight and body image. It is about relationships!
Even for couples the insight into why we act the way we do in relationships is so informative and educational.
We cannot undo the past. We cannot find in a relationship what we did not get as a child. There is no perfect soul mate to complete us. No other person should ever be "expected" to carry that burden for us.
Acceptance is the giving up of all hope of a better past.
Choosing to love in the present creates as better outcome for the future.
