Move beyond fear of intimacy, embrace vulnerability, and create lasting connection

A new book about relationships by Tamsen Firestone with Robert Firestone, PhD


Does it feel like your relationships never work out? After a breakup, do you spend most 
of your time dwelling on what the other person did to cause it, rather than reflecting on yourself? It may seem obvious that you want your romantic relationships to work, and that love and long-term commitment are your ultimate goals. But what if, instead of letting love in, you’re unconsciously pushing it away? And if so, how do you stop? 

Daring to Love will help you identify the self-protective behaviors that keep you from building the intimate, lasting relationship you truly desire. Using techniques based in the authors’ groundbreaking voice therapy—the process of acknowledging unhealthy patterns aloud—you’ll uncover the real reasons you’re sabotaging your love life and learn to quiet destructive thoughts that are rooted in fear of rejection, shame, or jealousy. With this book as your guide, you can approach your relationship with openness and fearlessness—two key ingredients for romantic bliss!
