As i was walking round tesco staring at the chocolate i started thinking remember that stupid crap book the one that i thought that if i put the contents into practice it would save my marriage.The book claimed to have the perfect solution to preventing the dissolutuon of ones marriage.it asserted that the problem lie with the wife for not obeying and respecting the lord and master ie the husband.It all made perfect sense at the time.Never question just do as you are told.I should never question or disrespect my husband.I should obey any requests no matter what they were.The husband'a authority was paramount as the lord of the castle.
The book entitled 'The Surrendered Wife' was indeed the way forward.I tried to put it all into practice over a 3 week period.Having tried it I remember almost losing my soul and extinguishing my self respect completely.
what books have you guys found either fab or not so fab.Or is it just me that has a bridgett jones type bookshelf.
I really loathe self-help books!! But voluntered to write a review of one of the Wiki bookshop ones, its called "I want a Divorce", and deals with the emotional side of divorce, step bystep, and also the legal side. the legal side is a bit dated, but otherwise is clear and comprehensive. I found reading the first part, dealing with the emoitions very helpful. I must write that review!
Like you, my many bookshelves contain mainly novels and history books - bar the one self-helpbook!
actually the paul mackenna one was quite gud i imagined the ex2b to be one of those little stretchy yellow men that kids get in party bags.then i bought a little yellow man he cost me 20p .i kept him on the floor of the drivers footwell and used to stamp on the little yellow belly everytime i got into the car.he reminded me of the ex2b as he was a very small yellow man with little emotion.I didn't half enjoy stamping on him i felt as if i had abit of power given back to me.hes probably still there i need to go check.
I had one of those yellow men - I called him Simon, not the name of my ex but it doesn't matter. He was very, very stretchy and took alot of abuse. We should all have a Simon, better than kicking my imaginary dog!!!
When I rang my x sister in law I was howling down the phone telling her my stbx (her brother) was having an affair. She told me she was reading a very good self help book and that I should get it !!!!!!!
At that point I think I mentioned something about putting her book where the sun don't shine and we have not spoken since.
My X sister in law has been reading those self help books for 12yrs and is still the cold self centered person she always was. Sometimes it's not all about self help it's about looking outside ones self as well.
Give me Wiki any day we may all be virtual but we are also proper people with proper feelings and emotions .
Thank you, rant over!!!!!!
ps like the idea of the yellow man, he may be better than the grow your own millionaire the girls in work bought me You had to grow him in water and he became very slimy. If there's one thing I don't need it's a slimy man!
