"How Could You Do This to Me? shows you that you don't have to be the victim of broken trust, betrayal, or lies. Quite simply, trust is an active, not a passive, process. You can take control of your life by learning how to change your attitudes and expectations of others - be they spouse, lover, colleague, family member, or friend. How Could You Do This to Me? tells you how to spot the warning signs that someone you trust may actually be untrustworthy." "You'll learn about the roots of trust, why you may be trusting too blindly, and why betrayers betray. You'll meet the people most likely to betray your trust: rivals, who want to be better than you; admirers who want to be just like you; and users who, thinking only of themselves, take away all you've worked for. You will also learn to recognize the personal risk factors that make you vulnerable to broken trust. Finally, you will learn how to deal effectively with the fallout of betrayal - how to curb the desire for revenge, when and how to confront those who have let you down, as well as when to forgive, if possible, and move on. Most importantly, this book teaches you how to trust yourself again."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
