Too many of us have invested ourselves into relationships that left us deeply wounded. We've been abandoned or taken advantage of, and left with little to show for what we've given. We've lost our sense of security and personal value in the process. And what's worse, we tend to either repeat the same mistakes of judgment over and over . . . Or else lock the doors of our hearts entirely and throw away the key. Why do we choose the wrong people to get involved with? Is it possible to change? And if so, where does one begin? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer solid guidance for making safe choices in relationships, from friendships to romance. They help 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 to recognize 20 traits of relationally untrustworthy people. Discover what makes some people relationally safe, and how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You'll learn about things within yourself that jeopardize your relational security. And you'll find out what to do and what not to do to develop a balanced, healthy approach to relationships.


  • Rounded amazing book

    By AngelsExist
    I’ve learned more in this book than almost any other book. It is so well rounded from why people are unsafe, to how you picked them to how to make changes to picking Safe People to be in your life. I have recommended this to everyone that I talk to and have an extra one sitting on my table at work for any clients that may want to read it.

    This book helped me to see that my "strong woman" attitude is really hurting me. Thank you for confronting my emotional withdrawal and lack needing to be loved. This book is a blessing.
