Bethany's New Book "Deal
Breakers: When to Work On A Relationship and
When to Walk Away"
from Simon Spotlight Entertainment, the publishers
Just Not That Into You."
This is a book about men. Not
all men, just emotionally unhealthy men. The
ones who make you question, "Is it him or
is it me? Am I making too big a deal out of this?
I try to tell him how I feel, but he says I'm
overreacting or needy or it's all my fault." Relationships
are hard work, but how hard should they be? When
do you know you are struggling too hard to make
a relationship succeed?
Deal Breakers is about getting
out of this "relationship purgatory" where
the present is unfulfilling and the future is
the only thing you can hope for. But there is
no magic future. If he won't work on problems
today, it's unlikely they'll ever be resolved.
And passively hoping for change will only cost
you years of depression or expensive therapy.
Dr. Bethany Marshall is here to
remind women that relationships - like business
relationships - are deals. In the business world,
a deal breaker is the one non-negotiable term
that, if not agreed to, means the deal is off.
But in the world of relationships, identifying
your deal breaker can be much more promising,
as it holds out the possibility of helping you
understand where the relationship has gone wrong,
what needs to be done in order to make it better,
and when to walk away because you're doing more
work than him to fix it.
By defining your deal breaker,
you hold all the power to create the happiness
