HighRoad Posted June 18, 2009 Share Posted June 18, 2009 Well, not like I am going to tell you what to do or anything but - D A N G !! I have been reading it and feel like my recovery and life issues are in fast forward. "Fear of Intimacy," by Robert Firestone. It is not a fast read, or a popular self-help kind of book. It is thoughtful, kind of academic but really, also very readable. It made me cry at first, and for a while, because I saw myself in it and I felt so sad at the things I have been doing in my life to avoid intimacy - and I didn't even really understand why. He also talks about the fantasy bond, and how that can impact our adult relationships. Hmmm ... Anyway, I have had some excellent therapy and many years in al-anon and some good time working on myself, but this book is just awesome for dealing with relationships - and ourselves. Awesome!! I have learned so much in the last few weeks here on ENA, I wanted to pass this on if it can be helpful to others on the journey. Link to comment
