Who hasn't felt unloved by being uninvited? I have felt it even after years of being an adult. How do I act when I'm uninvited? My feelings get hurt and then I let my feelings run away with my actions (if not always on the outside). This book made me feel less like an alien. The author gives practical examples and biblical references on how we can better handle our emotions. Also, she tells us that unaddressed hurts contribute to what I call crazy emotional behavior. If I can come to peace with the fact that I had a rough relationship as a child with my parents, then I can move forward and have more balanced relationships with friends, family, coworkers, etc. This isn't a magic pill... emotions are with us forever. It's just some practical skills to help you be more balanced.
