How to change the withdrawal patterns that isolate and imprison you.
Hiding From Love discusses:
our "two biggest problems related to love"
"helpful and harmful types of hiding"
"Hope for those in hiding"
When you experience emotional injury, fear, shame, or pride, your first impulse is to hide the hurting parts of yourself from God, others, and even yourself.
Often, you've learned these hiding patterns during childhood to protect yourself in a threatening environment. The problem is that when you hide your injuries and frailties, you isolate yourself from the very things you need in order to heal and mature. What served as protection for a child becomes a prison to an adult.
In Hiding From Love, Dr. John Townsend helps you to explore thoroughly the hiding pattern you've developed and guides you toward the healing grace and truth that God has built into safe, connected relationships with Himself and others.
