The Mastery of Love: A Practical Guide to the Art of the Relationship
By Don Miguel Ruiz
This book literally changed my life. A girlfriend recommended it and after I read it, I knew that my first marriage did not serve me and there was nothing I could do to piece it back together. Ruiz is a renowned spiritual teacher and author. I found his book to be very profound and it completely challenged my views on what a relationship should look like. Have an open mind, and stick with it.
The Five Love Languages
By Gary Chapman
Wow. This is a book I needed before my first marriage! Chapman breaks the way we express our love into five different languages. Before reading this book, I didn’t understand that when I emptied the dishwasher and cleaned the house, I was showing my love. As an acts of service kind of gal.
PS, the love languages you may express, may not be the ones you want to receive.
