Inhaltsangabe zu „Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions“ von Lysa TerKeurst

God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it! Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has had experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or we react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how. Filled with gut-honest personal examples and biblical teaching, Unglued will equip you to: Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships. Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended. Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication. Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode, or react somewhere in between. Gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out of your control without acting out of control.

    Most if not all women know what it’s like when our emotions get the better of us. While we may succeed in holding it together in public, at home, the smallest, most trivial things might set us off and spark an outburst at our loved ones. Becoming unglued is experienced by all women at some point. So as not to wallow in guilt and fall back into old patterns, Lysa TerKeurst offers her readers ways in which to choose more wisely and make what she calls imperfect progress. Unglued equips women with step-by-step spiritual strategies to help them manage their reactions and make those wise choices in the midst of raw emotions. Lysa TerKeurst candidly tells of her own unglued moments and imperfect progress, making Unglued so very accessible. I could definitely relate to her experiences. She identifies four categories of unglued reactions. Depending on the situation and people involved, she falls into all four categories. Surprisingly – or perhaps not – I do too. A short assessment to determine one’s own reaction type is provided in an appendix, which is very helpful. TerKeurst offers practical advice for her readers to implement, providing such strategies as a predetermined biblical procedure manual. Unglued is not just a book that will touch your heart, it will equip you to make wise choices and imperfect progress. This concept of imperfect progress really resonates with me. It takes the pressure off, thus allowing progress to be made, however imperfect it is. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever experienced unglued feelings. If you are a woman reading this, chances are you have. So get yourself a copy of Unglued.
