We were made to love and be loved. Loving ourselves and others is in our genetic code. It's nothing other than the purpose of our lives-but knowing that doesn't make it easy to do. We may find it a challenge to love ourselves. We may have a hard time letting love in from others. We're often afraid of getting hurt. It is also sometimes scary for us to share love with those around us-and love that isn't shared leaves us feeling flat and unfulfilled. David Richo provides the tools in How to Be an Adult in Love ($21.95) for learning how to love in evolved adult ways-beginning with getting past the barriers that keep us from loving ourselves, then showing how we can learn to open to love others.
