We'd have a great relationship if it weren't for you: regaining love and intimacy through mutuality
All intimate relationships that are troubled, painful, unsatisfying or stuck have one thing in common: the partners involved focus on their differences. To protect themselves from the fear & vulnerability of greater intimacy, they hide behind attitudes of judgment & blame. WE'D HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP IF IT WEREN'T FOR YOU presents a powerful alternative to the conflict. Author Bruce Derman leads couples away from their divisive judgmental thinking & into greater intimacy, satisfaction & love.
