And Getting Better All the TimeeBook - 1989
In simple, straightforward terms, Beattie takes you into the territory beyond codependency, into the realm of recovery and relapse, family-of-origin work and relationships, surrender and spirituality. With personal stories, hard-won insights, and activities, her book teaches the lessons of dealing with shame, growing in self-esteem, overcoming deprivation, and getting past fatal attractions long enough to find relationships that work.
"Melody Beattie is an American phenomenon . . . She connects with age-old quests for self-improvement and rebirth. . . And she] understands being overboard, which helps her throw best-selling lifelines to those still adrift." "Time"
" This book] goes beyond how we hurt to how we heal." Veronica Ray, author of "Choosing Happiness"
