Hiding from Love: How to Change the Withdrawal Patterns That Isolate and Imprison You Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When you experience emotional injury, fear, shame, or pride your first impulse is to hide the hurting parts of yourself from God, others, even yourself. Often you've learned these hiding patterns during childhood to protect yourself in a threatening environment. The problem is that when you hide your injuries and frailties, you isolate yourself from the very things you need in order to heal and mature. What served as protection for a child becomes a prison to an adult. In Hiding from Love, Dr. John Townsend helps you to explore thoroughly the hiding patterns you've developed and guides you toward the healing grace and truth that God has built into safe, connected relationships with himself and others. You'll discover: The difference between good and bad hiding, Why you hide the broken parts of your soul from the God who can heal them, How to be free to make mistakes without fear of exposing your failures and imperfections, How to obtain the joy and wholeness God intends you to have through healthy bonding with others. Hiding from Love will take you on a journey of discovery toward healing, connected relationships, and a new freedom and joy in living.

Maria Flook has published a second collection of poems, Sea Room, and four books of fiction. He first novel, Family Night, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, was awarded a PEN/Ernest Hemingway Foundation Special Citation. She has also published two collections of short fiction, the a new novel, Open Water, about which the New Yorker wrote: "Flook has fashioned a beautiful book out of the unlikeliest elements".
