Knowing your past and understanding what you did and how you felt is not enough to guarantee your future success in love. How you react to a partner and what you believe about the world and yourself originates in a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system has no words, only emotions. Past events, both happy and unhappy are stored in the limbic system and get triggered by present day happenings. The past may suddenly take over and you don’t even know it. Decisions you made long ago about being lovable, attractive, and intelligent, as well as decisions you made about relationships will trigger an instant reaction that may be untrue or harmful to you but you don’t realize it. All of this leads to the “over-and-overs” in your love life and the feeling of despair that anything can change. 84 pages.
