Why is it that despite our best efforts, many of us remain fundamentally unhappy and unfulfilled in our lives? In this provocative and inspiring book, David Richo distills thirty years of experience as a therapist to explain the underlying roots of unhappiness--and the surprising secret to finding freedom and fulfillment. There are certain facts of life that we cant change--the unavoidable givens of human existence: (1) everything changes and ends, (2) things do t always go according to plan, (3) life is t always fair, (4) pain is a part of life, and (5) people are t loving and loyal all the time. Richo shows us that by dropping our deep-seated resistance to these givens, we can find liberation and discover the true richness that life has to offer. Blending Western psychology and Eastern spirituality, including practical exercises, Richo shows us how to open up to our lives--including to what is frightening, painful, or disappointing--and discover our greatest gifts.
