“Save Yourself” by Tanya Mitchell is a must read for anyone in marital or relationship conflict. “Save Yourself” is raw and explicitly written with emotion! If you are struggling or wondering if your marriage or relationship is really over ~ this book of motivational quotes is for you. This writer skillfully captures the indecisiveness and fear one may wrestle with on a daily basis when making such an important decision.
This book is touching because it tells an emotional journey that many can relate to!
"Save Yourself" is a true reflection of thoughts and feelings I have had over the years, but more importantly it is a reminder that I AM WORTH IT...... worth the love, time, money, passion, friendship, encouragement, sacrifice. Love the opening statements to each month!
This book is an excellent read! It is very relevant to real live situations/relationships. It distinctively points out common issues that are either overlooked/accepted. It really makes you think about your self worth and not settling in any situation.
"Save Yourself (Before You Change Your Mind)" is a book of daily golden affirmations
Save Yourself (Before You Change Your Mind)” is a raw and heartfelt collection of daily inspirations. It connects with its readers on an emotional level that would inspire one to define and redefine there past, present and future challenges. At first glance its seems to only appeal to the emotional sensibility of women but after delving deeper into the readings I found myself as a man discovering the practical truths of the daily affirmations. Although we don’t like to admit it, brothers long to be saved as well. The author has weaved a story of confessions that would help us all reach this goal.
Save Yourself is the right combination of jabs and hugs. Enough jabs to disturb your current situation, to make you want to get out of it immediately. Enough hugs to pull you through to the greatness that is inside of you, to your new destination that God has prepared for you!
While this isn’t really my type of book – I will say that I did enjoy reading it and that I will definitely remind myself of some of the affirmations going forward. The book does seem to be geared toward bad relationships, but still could be useful to other folks struggling with other issues, depression, self-esteem, and it could be used towards personal goals as well.
