Currently, the divorce rate, nearly 50%, continues to increase steadily. Varying degrees of anxiety, depression, and lack of physical intimacy is often cited as leading causes of such breakdowns. Why, you may ask?

Without full emotional development, relationships will be unable to sustain emotional closeness. Dr. Leonard believes that this emotional closeness, the deep connections we have with one another through thoughts and feelings, is key to alleviating anxiety and depression. Couples who are emotionally close have more intimacy, joy, trust, and satisfaction in their lives.

Dr. Leonard explains the concept of emotional closeness and how to get it back. Loving Well gives you tools to get closer if you lack this vital element in your current relationship. Not just for couples, Loving Well will help those dating, helping you ensure you don’t commit to someone emotionally unavailable. This book is also useful for parents seeking to repair relationships with estranged children. Loving Well can help anyone regain connections to loved ones.

    The book is a valuable roadmap to healthy relating Erin Leonard’s book Loving Well:
    The Key to Satisfying and Joyful Relationships is a profound read. Her writing has clarity, succinctness, and wisdom. I can’t tell you how much I learned from reading this slim book brimming with explanations and answers about the perils of love when attached to a person who can’t really attach!

    Loving Well
    I gained a much better understanding of my past relationships (marriage, family, and friends). I now realize the importance of emotionally evolving, what that really looks like when it happens, and when it doesn’t!

    The awareness of empathic involvement as opposed sympathetic responses has been vital for me as I’ve been growing my important relationships. Two of my favorite excerpts from the book relate to empathy.
    • Empathy should always preempt advice, problem solving, and recommendations.
    • Empathy is the key to trust, respect, and closeness in every relationship.
    Dr. Leonard uses numerous examples to bring a non-theoretical reality to the concepts she describes. They are real, honest, and sometimes painful situations that I was able to relate to my life. Loving Well has provided tremendous insight into what I need to own and what I need to let go of with respect to the failings, and successes, of my relationships.

    I am thankful that Dr. Leonard wrote Loving Well and that I took the opportunity to read it!
