Those of us who want to thrive in love have a new tool. When a new couple comes in for counseling, we usually give them a copy of Conscious Loving to read (or re-read) before the next session; now we'll also give them a copy of Thrive and say, "Read this one first."
Almost everybody agrees that love is difficult and relationships take a lot of work. We found that to be completely wrong -- love is remarkably easy, and relationships don't take work in order to thrive.
We still live in a world where too many LGBT people have unconsciously held onto the poisonous, negative beliefs about sexual orientation that our society, churches, and government still force feed us.
