[reading note] How to Be an Adult in Relationships: The Five Keys to Mindful Loving – David Richo

For me, this is not an easy book to read. The language is quite different from my daily conversations. The vocabulary is beyond my understanding of English. The discussed topics are definitely not entertaining; some of them can be hard to face. When I read this book, I often end up in serious thinking and retrospecting. This book promotes to show five A’s, Attention, Acceptance, Appreciation, Affection, and Allowing, in all kinds of relationships, not only the romantic ones. I agree that the five A’s are all very important. Looking back into my behaviors in relationships, I’m not too bad, but far from excellent. One of the pattern I can see about myself is that I tend to give more attention, but not enough allowing. The origin of this pattern could be from multiple sources, but I believe as long as I’m aware of it, there will be self-calibration. I’m sure this is not the only problem I have in relationships. Reading this book is part of the course of self-discovery. I believe the more flaws I can see in the mirror, the more I can be polished.
