Disclaimer: I have not read this book – at least not cover-to-cover. However, I’ve been following the discussions on it and particularly have followed Lysa TerKeurst’s postingsabout it – from writing drafts to its publication. It’s quite a topic she’s tackling!
Here is my analysis from a little online assessment about communication in relationship…right on target, don’t you think?
Stuffer who build barriers
In this relationship you do not express your hurt feelings but instead you build a barrier within the relationship. You don’t like conflict and feel the need to protect yourself from further frustration or hurt. The other person knows something is wrong because of the way you’ve pulled back emotionally in the relationship. But you continue to say, “I’m fine,” even when you’re anything but okay. Lysa TerKeurst’s Biblically-based book, Unglued, will help you break free from barriers that shut down communication. Your relationships will dramatically improve when you know how to establish healthy boundaries where you feel safe enough to communicate honestly, even in times of conflict.
