Wounds from primal relationships, such as those with mothers and fathers, run very deep. If your childhood involved an absent, addicted or abusive father, you may have the following 'emotional ghosts': low self-esteem, people-pleasing, approval-seeking, co-dependency, wishing and praying that your dad would change into the father you believe he should be, feeling frequently angry, choosing romantic partners who remind you of your dad, feeling intimidated by male authority figures. In this insightful and compassionate book, former psychotherapist Doreen Virtue and practising clinical social worker Andrew Karpenko present a range of self-healing techniques to empower you to counsel your inner wounded child so that you can deal with men as a healthy functioning adult. Whether you are a man or a woman, they help you to choose thriving, balanced relationships with the males in your life; open your heart to feeling safe receiving love; and reconnect with both divine feminine and masculine energies.
