I started reading this book on the preview page that was displayed on Amazon...I was telling a friend about it, and how much I related to just the few pages that I could see without buying the book. A few days later, I came home and this book was in my mailbox; my friend had purchased it and sent it to me with a personalized note: "I hope this helps you find your way..." I tore open the package and started my reading.
I have started several books, of this same genre, yet, I could never finish one...I never related to any of them like I related to this book. It was by far, the most accurate book about mistrust and hurt that I've ever come across, I was amazed and uplifted by every page, story, and situation. In other books I felt like the author would be telling me "yeah you feel like this, but forget about it, get over it, move on"...not Mira! She even said (several times) point blank, yeah, he/she hurt you, and I'm not telling you that's okay, or that you shouldn't be angry...that is exactly what I needed to hear! I needed to hear that someone out there understood me, and that it was okay for me to be angry and that I didnt have to just forget about it...then this book helped me find different ways to learn how to deal with the way I was feeling, it was reinforcing positive encouragement, something I really needed. One book I started to read before this one even made me feel guilty, because it mentioned that somewhere along the lines I must've done something to cause the affair. I have told friends about Mira's book, most of whom are going through different types of betrayal issues. I have highlighted points in this book, so that I can go back to them for a reminder of just how important it is to be smart about your reactions and thoughts on things. Like Mira my mistrust stemmed from an emotional affair...never would I have guessed that something like that could cause me so much pain and grief, yet it did, and every feeling or thought I've had through this rebuilding trust process was in this book. It's hard to believe that someone could touch on every emotion and every detail of my thoughts, up until this book, I felt sad and alone. I really didn't know how to deal with something like this, I never thought that someone could hurt so badly from something like an `emotional affair' and honestly, until it happened to me, I didn't even know what it was! Though, I still wish it had never happened, it taught me so much, about me, about my husband, and about our life, that maybe I would have never known. This book showed me the way, it showed me that I can heal from this. I'm choosing forgiveness and trust in my relationship, and I hope, if you are considering reading this book that you do and that you can find a way to forgive and trust again too. It's worth it!
