Reviews - What do customers think about Breaking Up, Down and Through: Discovering Spiritual and Psychological Opportunities in Your Transitions?
Christian Self Help Jun 16, 2001
Fr. Papineau offers some insightful approaches to dealing with very real and yet confounding human difficulties. No one likes change. Using simple examples from anthropology and real human situations, the author shows us why change is difficult. At the same time, he offers some simple ways to overcome these difficulties and get through the painful aspects of change.
Especially helpful were the chapters that dealt with the "how to" of forgiving others, and the reflections on "depression." Fr. Papineau looks at how conflicts and hurtful situations are often the result of illusions and allowing ourselves to be "set up." He also helps us to see that "depression" is our psyche's way of telling us that we need to make a change.
The book is especially helpful for people who are in transition: newly-married or divorced people, people who have just experienced a job change, novices, graduates, empty-nesters, newly retired folks, etc.
