It really is true, we place so much importance on what everyone else thinks instead of focusing on what god thinks.

For me the book started out so great, I could identify with so many things he was saying. I couldn't put it down, but halfway through I got a little lost and it was difficult sometimes to keep up. It became more biblical and less personal, I liked his personal stories, that is how I could connect in my own life. The bibilical references were great also but it got overwhelming at times to stay connected. Overall it was a great book and it has made me more self aware of where I place my priorities.
A terrific book that enables one to start to challenge the thoughts behind our "needs" and see them in a new and different light. Realizing any need we have fulfilled, needs to be for a bigger picture of being a imitator of God, and turning it all around for God's glory.
I really appreciate how the book enables you to think outside the box, and brings to light the power we give to people who are unable of giving us what we want or need. How to let God's love fill us to then give it to others and bring Him glory.
Amazing book, applicable to every relationship. The more we apply the principles in this book to our lives, the closer we will be to God and the less vulnerable we will be to destructive people. We are able to love others better while keeping good boundaries.
