NOTE: These are not my ideas. This intellectual property belongs to Dr. Henry Cloud and his book Necessary Endings.
I’ve just reread Henry Cloud’s book, Necessary Endings. This book was pivotal in my decision to end a toxic relationship – my marriage.
I am proud of the decision? No.
Was it necessary? Absolutely. It had become a toxic relationship.
And no slander to my ex-wife, it was on both of us. It always is.
This book was SO profound to me that I decided I am going to summarize a couple chapters of the book over the next few weeks. I am really looking forward to having a dialogue in the Comments section of each post so if you’re game and want a head start, GO GET THE BOOK ALREADY! http://www.amazon.com/Necessary-Endings-Employees-Businesses-Relationships/dp/0061777129
Have you read the book? Please let me know in the comment section below, or click the “thumbs up” icon. Let me know if you’re planning on buying the book, or planning on joining in, in any way. This is going to be really exciting!
I’m going mention the major points of chapters 5 and 6 (at least) since these were the two sections that validated what I was feeling and going through. It will answer questions like-
- Is there something in my life that needs pruning?
- Why is “hopelessness” important?
- How do we decide if a pruning is necessary? Do all things really need to end?
This book was a life changer for me.
It is a staple book on my book shelf. It is thoroughly highlighted and marked up with extra notes.
I hope it impacts your life in a positive way.
