Don't let the title fool you--whether you have the love you want, are looking, or don't have any interest, the focus is on learning how to love yourself. I have read and re-read this book many, many times.
It is hi-lighted and rabbit eared to the point that I would never be able to lend anyone my copy but it is one of the best self-help books I have ever encountered and I have read a TON of them, believe me.
I find Iyanla's voice very real and she seems to "walk the talk"-very genuine. I also Don't let the title fool you--whether you have the love you want, are looking, or don't have any interest, the focus is on learning how to love yourself. I also find the book very accessible and user friendly--literally helpful from the first page. This book has helped me get through personal loss, tragedy, transitions, and many other "meantime" experiences for several years now.

My sanity was more important then my son having a father in the house because if I stayed he may not have had either one of us. If you are in the meantime This book is definitely for you! The love and appreciation tha This book saved my life! The love and appreciation that I feel for Iyanla Vanzant for sharing her stories and her life is immeasureable. If you buy this book you won't regret it It will be one for you to reread years later and get a whole new meaning from it because you are in a different place.
Great book that will change your life! Jan 10, Kimberly rated it really liked it. The truth is that love is buried in your soul, and no relationship with anyone can unearth it or activate it in your life.
I was no longer angry about what i could not and did not have in a relationship. In the meantime, I learned how to mind my own business. The business of loving myself and being excited about me. The interference from my relationship channel was creating static on every other channel of my life.
In the meantime, if we can remain loving of ourselves and toward other people by s The truth is that love is buried in your soul, and no relationship with anyone can unearth it or activate it in your life. In the meantime, if we can remain loving of ourselves and toward other people by staying in conscious and honest communication, a disruption, snag, or delay in a relationship becomes a healing process.
When we cannot, we engage in meantime behavior - hurting, fighting, not telling the truth, and moving forward in confusion. Life is all about love. Love is the only true meaning of life. Accept the fact that in a relationship the only person you are dealing with is yourself. Your partner does nothing more than reveal your stuff to you.
What you believe about yourself is reflected in the people with whom you choose to align yourself. Our relationships and the people in them are the tools God uses to give us a soul lift. God, the creator of our life, wants you to elevate the way you view yourself and treat yourself, and ultimately the way you treat others and allow them to treat you. Love cannot work through dishonesty, denial, fear, or people-pleasing. Dec 07, Vonda Roark-martinez rated it it was amazing.
I read this book the first time in , I'd taken a self prescribed sabbatical from dating to embark on a journey of self discovery. Four years after I had turned the last page and closed the book from a second read, I met and married the love of my life, my truest life partner, my husband.

This book taught me about me that I needed to be seilfish on occasion and put me first. That my value was there for my discovery, my knowledge, and my forgiveness.
Jul 30, Leslie rated it it was amazing. This book is very helpful, especially if you are having relationship trouble. The author helps you to look at your life from an interesting perspective. She uses the metaphor of moving up through the floors of a house, needing to take care of each level before moving on to the next. The basement is where you are miserable and hopefully realize that things need to change. As you move up the floors, you need more self-love and appreciation, more spiritality, more honesty, etc.
I found this book to This book is very helpful, especially if you are having relationship trouble. I found this book to be very enlightening and have many highlighted sections to re-read when necessary. Mar 04, Darci rated it it was amazing. The title really says it all, but Vanzant gets to the heart of the matter by using personal experience and the trials of others to show that loving yourself enough to make difficult personal choices is where love and joy abound.
I often found myself in a myriad of emotions reading this book, and abandoned it for some time before picking it up again. I recommend this read to anyone looking to discover real change through learning the secret of truly loving yourself and others. Nov 30, Yvonne Riggs rated it it was amazing. If you are in the reflecting stages of you life wondering where your relationships went wrong, this is for you.
Never give up on love. Your meantime is for a reason.
