Love From the Inside Out

By

Reach Your Self-love Relationship Goals

Celebrity love coach and positive psychology expert Robert Mack has helped millions of people transform their love lives on and off television. In his most recent release, he shares a creative new outlook on the meaning of true love.

A distillation of penetrating self-help statements on how to love. In his characteristic humor and wit, Mack explores the frustration and futility of seeking love from others, instead of yourself—and in the future, instead of in the present. With intimacy and warmth, each expression, aphorism, and instruction in Love from the Inside Out shares a personal and professional inquiry on love and on the relationship with love that has been taught.

Burn away antiquated and attached relationship goals conditioning. Love from the Inside Out combines the no-nonsense style of Dr. Laura Schlessinger books with the transformative insight of marriage counseling books and relationship books. Inside, Mack challenges our most fundamental understanding of love and how to love by interlacing Christian mysticism, Buddhist principles, Hindu breathing exercises, and positive thinking in psychology practices. Using the quick tips, tricks, and teachings in this book, you will question the nonconstructive beliefs of typical self-help books and relationship books for women and finally create a healthy relationship with love.

In Love from the Inside Out, find answers to questions such as:

  • How can I overcome the psychology of being alone and learn how to love myself first?
  • How can I keep my relationship goals sexy, fresh, and alive?
  • How can I create healthy relationships without being overly attached?

Love from the Inside Out is a wonderful addition to any shelf of psychology books, books on marriage and relationships, celebrity books, or self-help books. If you enjoyed Relationship Goals by Michael Todd or Single, Dating, Engaged, Married by Ben Stuart, you’ll love this encouraging book!
