I’ve always believed women should be strong and independent. Go to college, get a great job and learn to survive on their own and not have to depend on a man, or anyone for that matter. Often times I have seen women bounce from relationship to relationship for security, just to survive in life. When one relationship starts to go bad, so does the self-esteem. They start to find another security blanket in order to keep moving on – they never really make a solid life for themselves. Often, the new relationships were just a quick fix or rebound so they could have another place to live. Then the repetitious pattern would keep going, which would never build into a good relationship.
“There’s a Pattern Here and It Ain’t Glen Plaid” is packed with encouraging tools to regain your self-esteem and take charge of having a better relationship with yourself. Solid healthy relationships are built when young girls and women get to know themselves first. Women who have the courage to get to know themselves will soon make better choices. Loving *you* and exploring your interests will help you believe in yourself and give you the courage to be independent. Children from this kind of union between parents are more likely to break the vicious pattern and grow up to be more independent and have greater self-worth. Being independent and building a sense of self is not an overnight process. It requires time.
I loved the way the author told personal experiences through humorous stories. I could relate to these stories. I felt my self-esteem lift and was encouraged to build on my own independence. I strongly recommend reading this book, and utilizing the tools and reference guide to build your own sense of self-worth. “There’s a Pattern Here and It Ain’t Glen Plaid” is a great reference tool to add to your library.
