|HEALING RELATIONSHIPS, by Serge Kahili King, Ph.D.
Quote from the book:
"Everything exists in a multitude of relationships with other things. Not all relationships are healthy, however, in terms of being beneficial to whomever or whatever is related. This is especially true of human relationships, the subject of this particular book. Considering all the differences between men and women, between men and men, between women and women, between cultures and environments and everything else, it is a mystery and a wonder that anyone ever gets along with anyone else.
And yet, they do. Most people, most of the time, do get along, lots of people, some of the time, don't, and a few people all of the time never do. This book is primarily for the second group.
What's really amazing is that so many people do figure out how to get along all by themselves, without any help. What's so sad is that so many people don't know how to do it, for whatever reason. Leaving out the people who just don't want to get along with others, I think that everyone who wants to get along can do so, because I believe that, fundamentally, everyone does want to get along. I also believe that all it takes is some simple knowledge of what to do, and how to do it."
