New Book Offers Help in Loving Difficult People at Difficult Times
Every day, people struggle with relating to others. While being kind is a start, often it is still hard to respond appropriately to others. In C.E. Herman's new book, Loving Difficult People at Difficult Times: A Path towards Enlightenment, she offers strategies for effectively communicating with people who may seem difficult. She has found that once people learn to change their perspective relative to others, treating them well becomes effortless.
"Once we agree to look at others from a different perspective, it becomes so easy to love even the most difficult people we meet," she said.
Herman's book shares her personal experiences in loving difficult people and how she learned to interact successfully with them. She shares different situations where we may encounter someone difficult and how we can respond with love. According to Herman, the key to reacting towards others with love comes from loving yourself. Treating others well is an internal, personal journey, which spills out to how we relate to others.
"To love others unconditionally, I first had to learn to accept and love myself unconditionally," said Herman. "Truth is indelibly written within each of us and is by no means the same for all. I am not to judge others because I am equal to all others."
Loving Difficult People at Difficult Times is a helpful tool for both living with difficult people and coming to terms with loving oneself.
