Download and read online Impossible to Please in PDF and EPUB Everyone knows someone who is impossible to please, critical, judgmental, picky, and stubbornly closed-minded. These are symptoms of a disorder called obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), but it’s common for people to have subclinical levels of some or all of these qualities. Most of the time, it’s best to avoid the difficult to please person, but what happens when he or she is a close family member, coworker, or even a spouse? It’s still possible to maintain a positive relationship with the right tools. Impossible to Please, written by the authors of Toxic Coworkers, is a manual for dealing with these difficult people without sitting through stressful arguments, vicious insults and attacks, and passive-aggressive behavior. It empowers readers to take charge of the relationship and regain their dignity and confidence in interactions with these individuals. This book features specific strategies that are immediately effective when conversing with critical people and explains how readers can respond to unfair blame without becoming angry or overly defensive. By setting boundaries, improving communication, and asserting themselves, readers learn to deal with the impossible to please in romantic relationships, friendships, family, and work relationships.

Download and read online The HOPE DEALER in PDF and EPUB The Christian religion is the religion of hope. There are many references in the New Testament concerning this hope. Hope is defined as “desire with expectation of obtaining what is desired.” Desire alone is not hope. We may desire the gift of a million dollars, but we certainly cannot expect it. Expectation alone is not hope. We may expect trials and tribulations (John 16:33), but we do not desire them. But where there is desire and expectation there is hope; and the Christian hope burning brightly within us is necessary for successful Christian living (Hebrews 6:18-19). Heaven, with all of its bliss and grandeur, is the hope of the Christian. We ought to desire it and expect it. I hope this message of Hope finds a lodging place in your life.
