Dropping Your Guard: The Value of Open Relationships
In a world of excessive and out-of-balance individualism, here is a book that builds a powerful case for people-with-people involvement. Many of us have learned that survival is easier when we hide our true selves. We feel safer when we hide our true selves. We feel safer when we can put up a mask that says "I'm tough" or "I'm holy" or "I'm always in control". The touble is that as we continue to hide behind our masks we become lonely and isolated, because we have created a distance between ourselves and those whose love and acceptance we really need.
