你常生氣、為小事抓狂嗎?

抓狂不是壞事,摸清情緒模式與疏通才是重點

讓每位母親、妻子與女性都深深共鳴的一本書!


很想抓狂、準備抓狂、或是已經抓狂了!

沒關係,拿起本書召喚新的方法、觀點,以及全新的你。


在碰到讓人抓狂或煩躁的狀況時,有些人會壓抑,有些人會爆發,也有些人是視情況都有。然而,這兩種都不是最佳選擇,因為壓抑讓你把事情悶在心裡、累積不滿與情緒毒素,爆發則會導致衝動、講氣話,把小衝突變成大衝突。不論哪一種,都會損害重要的人際關係。

其實,除了壓制和爆發,我們還有更明智、更有效益的應對模式。本書針對人們常見的四種情緒反應類型:事後羞愧的爆發者、責怪別人的爆發者、建造藩籬的壓抑者、收集石頭以待報復的壓抑者,以充滿啟發且實用的方式,引用了作者親身經驗、各種生活範例與聖經的教導,告訴我們:


◎當你和重要的人發生衝突時,該如何面對與解決?

◎受到傷害時,要如何平靜地面對被損害的關係?

◎分辨你是哪種類型的反應者,藉此增進自己的溝通力

◎管理壓抑/爆發的情緒,做出不讓自己後悔的回應

◎面對控制之外的事情時,卻不會失控,藉此獲得深刻的平靜感


只要用對方法,就可以讓情緒為我們所用,而不是跟我們作對。辨別自己是哪一型的反應者,選擇適當的應對模式,你將發現衝突解決了,自己的溝通能力增進了,受損的關係也修復了,深刻的平靜與生命的改變也隨之到來。


【四大特色】

◎附有情緒反應測驗,找出自己的反應類型,對症下藥

◎列出明確的情緒處理步驟,確實解決衝突、修復關係

◎不使用專業用語,好讀好懂

◎貼近日常生活的案例,各種抓狂情況都可應對

出版社 啟示(城邦)

Embraced is the beautiful new devotional from Lysa TerKeurst, the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the New York Times bestselling author of Uninvited, The Best Yes, Unglued, and Made to Crave. Embraced features 100 devotions that will resonate with women in all stages of life by giving them a godly perspective on the issues they face each day.

A real embrace indicates an intimate level of closeness. It’s not a high five or a casual handshake. The best kind of embrace is when someone we know deeply loves us flings their arms wide open and pulls us in close.

Our hearts were made for this kind of love and security but for many of us, we know more about the pain of heartbreak and fear than the unconditional love for which we were created.In Embraced, Lysa shares her own struggles, doubts, and heartbreaks while pointing to the Ultimate Embrace: God opening His arms wide on Calvary through Jesus so that He could pull us close for all of eternity. Welcoming us into the safety and hope of His grace and His love.

And because we have been fully embraced by Him, we can spend our lives held securely by Him and trust all of His ways.

Through these 100 devotions, daily scriptures, and prayer prompts, readers will be equipped to:

Begin to find freedom from the struggles that have held them hostage by learning new ways to experience God’s love and more authentic ways to trust Him.Surrender their deepest hurts by processing them in a godly way with Lysa, a friend who understands their pain.Hear the Lord speak intimately to their heart by learning how to seek His direction.Release the tension of wondering, If God is near why does He sometimes feel far away? by spending intentional, guided time with Him each day.

With an exquisite cloth cover, highly designed interior, ribbon marker, and stained page edges, Embraced will be a treasured keepsake for you as well as a meaningful gift for those you love.
