Safe People – Find Good Relationships and Avoid Those That Aren’t

How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren’t 

Do you have safe people in your life? Or, have you invested in a relationship that left you deeply wounded? Have you been betrayed or taken advantage of, and left with little to show for what was given? In these situations, you can lose your sense of security and personal value. And what’s worse, you tend to either repeat the same mistakes of judgment, or lock the door of your heart entirely and throw away the key.

Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer solid guidance for making safe choices in relationships, from friendships to romance. They identify the nurturing people we all need in our lives, as well as ones we need to learn to avoid. Safe People will help you:

  • Recognize 20 traits of relationally untrustworthy people.
  • Discover what makes some people relationally safe.
  • Develop discernment to avoid unhealthy entanglements.

In this incredibly insightful book, you’ll learn about things within yourself that could jeopardize your relational security. Find out what to do and what not to do to develop a balanced, healthy approach to relationships.

“I could not put Safe People down, and would often review and re-read the paragraphs to make sure I did not forget the information. This book has been on my night stand for months. I often re-read sections as they become relevant to my daily situation. The wealth of applicable information is priceless.”
