BOOK REVIEW: Teach Me How to Love

Share Button

It is a process, but the healing has begun. You are now able to see the part you played in the demise of your previous relationships. You are now ready to be open, vulnerable, and let love in. But you are still afraid. Afraid that you still don’t know how to love, or even worse, than you cannot identify when true love is being offered to you. Have no fear, this book is exactly what you need to get passed those walls you’ve built up around your heart and allow love to flow, to yourself and from yourself and I am happy to write this book review as your introduction to the next part of the process.

In Teach Me How to Love, Author and Relationship Coach Troy Spry takes readers on a journey allowing them to recognize that although they may claim to want love, have loved, or be open to love, their mindset shows quite the opposite. Troy reminds us that when we treat love as a distant, unexplainable feeling the Universe makes it just how we see it; distant and unexplainable. Thus, we are unable to grasp the love we truly desire.

What I love about this book is that it is not geared specifically to either gender. Men and women are given reality checks as to why and where their quest for love has, once again, come up void. While Troy claims this is not truly a How To Book, but rather a Mind Change book, I’d have to disagree and say it’s both. While providing hard hitting truth, that if you are open to accepting, will have you set your love intentions properly and attract the love you desire, it also gives measurable advice as how to be the love someone else can recognize and desire. Additionally, the book ends with pointed questions that allows the reader to identify the hurdles they have placed in their psyche when it comes to being and attracting love.

Thus far, this has been one of my favorite relationship, self-help books I’ve read (excluding the one I authored of course). It is a quick and easy read. But it requires you to ask the hard questions of yourself and is a resource that helps you get to those answers on your own. But again, only if you are truly ready to invite and give love to yourself and others.

I’d like to close out with one of my favorite quotes from this book and the lesson I would like you to learn the most,

“The romantic version of lust has been substituted for what love truly is. Love is a verb, an action word. It is expressed in what we do and how we serve one another. Most times when people say they fell out of love, what they’ve really done is fall out of lust.”
