Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
I have never met anyone who is not impacted by their relationships. These dynamics are what make us human. One journey, that can often take a lifetime, is fine tuning our ability to communicate with others, and improve these dynamics. I personally feel this is a life long journey. Dr. Tatkin’s book was recommended to me when I was between relationships and wanting to understand myself better. By having this insight, it allowed me to have insight into my relationships and what I needed.
