The First Step to a Successful Relationship
By Daniel Beaver

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60927-830-4, 196 pages


Everyone should read this book, the earlier in life the better. We all hear, "you have to love yourself before you can love someone else," but what does that even mean? Read this book & you will know. You will also learn the difference between a functional & dysfunctional relationship. How to be the kind of person that CAN be in a functional relationship. —Review from

Many of us have heard the phrase, "You have to love yourself before you can love someone else." If you ask someone what it means to love yourself, all you get are one-word, usually vague answers. In a very real, direct, down-to-earth manner, Love Yourself teaches you to learn the attitudes and behaviors that make self-love a reality.

Love Yourself is a guide to developing the skills necessary to increasing your ability to have a successful intimate relationship, including:

  • Learning how to set better psychological boundaries in life
  • Improving your self-esteem
  • Communicating with yourself like you would a lover
  • Handling your anger in a constructive manner
