Item description for Who's Pushing Your Buttons?: Handling the Difficult People in Your Life by John Townsend...
Overview Enjoy all that God has provided. . .in a healthy way.
Whether it's chocolate, cars, travel, sports, the Internet, TV, work or sex, every person has the God-given capacity for enjoying things. Our earthly appetites, like fire, can serve many good purposes and fill our lives with warmth. But when those appetites get out of control, they can become an inferno that is capable of destroying a marriage, a career, a soul. Bestselling author Stephen Arterburn, along with Dr. Debra Cherry, counsels readers in these key areas, showing them how to strike a balance in those things that threaten physical, spiritual and emotional health, and guiding them to fully enjoy all that God has provided in a healthy way.
Publishers Description Button-pushers come in all shapes and sizes, but they have one thing in common: Their behavior drives us crazy and makes us dream of ways to escape the mess we're in. The person who pushes your buttons is likely someone who matters to you--a spouse, a parent, a boss, a fellow church member. Almost always the difficult person is connected to you by blood, love, faith, or money, so you can't just end the relationship without causing pain and upheaval in your life. Our friends and today's culture will often advise us to abandon such relationships quickly--to end this unpleasant chapter and get on with our lives. "Your button-pusher is not someone you would easily and casually leave. You are intertwined at many levels. It is worth the trouble to take a look at the ways the relationship you had, and want, can be revived and reborn." This audio book offers expert insights to help you understand your own button-pusher, wise assistance in determining the nature of the problem, compassionate help in identifying your failed attempts to fix things, a hope-filled vision for what can be and how to make it come true, and rich resources to help you navigate the necessary changes.
