This book is about a problem disguised as a solution, an idea that shapes and drives us all:
It’s about the universal urge to make reality meet our expectations. How this urge becomes an addiction, wrecking lives and relationships. How it leads to anxiety, depression, substance abuse, broken marriages and dysfunctional parenting.
In this book you’ll learn
~ Why everyone is addicted to control
~ How this addiction causes most – if not all – of our emotional problems
~ The three healthy alternatives to compulsive controlling.
~ How to listen to feelings instead of controlling them.
Filled with actionable insights you can start using today, Monkeytraps is a must-read for anyone seeking happiness, healthier relationships, and more peace of mind.
