Infidelity is a universal phenomenon that is continually becoming more and more common, as demonstrated in recent statistics from the United States, Europe and Latin America. 'Negative fidelity', is a new term now considered to be when a couples union is maintained due to fear, irrational obligations, and economic or social interests. Walter Riso asks if it is truly possible to be faithful in the world today. Recalling his clinical experience and life stories, he analyzes this topic without implying prejudice or false moralities. This book dives into the discussion of why, regardless of the negative effects, it is increasingly occurring.

Fidelity is not the absence of desire, but rather the product of will and conscious decision. In other words, fidelity is self-control and timely avoidance. When we suspect that we may end up liking someone in that way or when we feel the first tingle of attraction and we don’t want to be unfaithful, the best option is to turn away from temptation and avoid playing with fire at all costs. In this guide, Dr. Walter Riso provides a number of indispensable steps to help us understand infidelity from its different perspectives. He also outlines a number of strategies that can help us identify whether infidelity has become a part of our sentimental relationship with out partner.

When you are assertive, you are actively exercising and/or defending your rights: saying no, expressing disagreement, giving a contrary opinion and/or expressing concrete negative feelings without submissively allowing yourself to be manipulated or aggressively violating the rights of others. If you are afraid of hurting other people’s feelings by being honest, if you are not able to express your anger or a conflicting opinion in a way that is socially acceptable, or if you feel that others humiliate and manipulate you.
I have written this guide in order to help you create a space for reflection within your life and as a result develop emotional and cognitive strategies that can make you more resistant to love-sickness. Once you learn exactly why we absurdly equate love to suffering, you´ll know how to avoid falling into the trap and learn to foster more adaptive schemes of behaviour. Through the concepts of philosophy, psychology and his 30 years plus of experience as a therapist, in the 39 chapters of this book, Walter Riso guides us through a model or scheme of reflection to help us understand the characteristics of a love that is good (healthy, coherent, constructive) and one that is bad (sick, incoherent, destructive).
Being emotionally independent does not mean that you have to stop being loving, It is about being the master of your own feelings, faithful to your own principles and never handing over your personal dignity to someone else in exchange for something, not even in the name of love. Do I you love or do I depend? If this is a question you ask yourself, then this guide, based on the bestseller, To Love or to Depend? is for you. In it, Walter Riso teaches us, in a practical manner and without too much theory involved, the steps we need to take in order to be able to love without being emotionally dependent. He provides ideas and processes that will help you develop the right skills to deal with emotional dependency, prevent it and/or create a lifestyle aimed at emotional independence and affective detachment.

If we lived with an awareness of reincarnation and karma, we would never think of life as random, perceive ourselves as victims, and we’d always be conscious of our actions. Life would make more sense and would be infinitely more fulfilling. Reincarnation is the soul’s journey back to the Light via multiple physical incarnations.In each lifetime, the soul returns to the physical world to correct a different aspect of itself. In one incarnation a soul may need to learn about being rich; another it may need to learn about being poor. Or it may need to experience strength and weakness, anger and compassion, beauty and unsightliness. It doesn’t matter if you were Cleopatra or a foot soldier, the point is to be conscious of the things we failed at, the damage we came to restore so we can make the correction this time around. Reading this book can help you understand some of the challenges and questions you have in this lifetime that may have come from another life. Part I discussses the process of reincarnation—how and why it happens. In Part II, you will learn about life challenges and why it’s important to embrace them as a necessary part of our soul’s work. In Part III, you can detect past life lessons by using kabbalistic tools of angels, astrology, palm and face reading. Awareness of our soul’s journey creates a context that helps us to guide our lives and appreciate what we were given. With this knowledge over many lifetimes our soul eventuality manages to understand all the lessons and puts all of these fragments together. As it does so, the soul gathers sparks of Light back to itself. Eventually it returns to the source of all Light—the Creator—complete. When we understand reincarnation, our mistakes in this life become devastating. We develop a level of spiritual maturity that helps us to perceive how everything is part of a bigger plan designed to help us to change and grow. Death is not the end of the game, but just a chance to do over. We have nothing to fear. Life will be continued . . .
“Activating your self-love is the first step towards any type of psychological growth and personal improvement. Of course I am not talking about the dark side of self-esteem, which leads to narcissism and fascination with the ego, but rather about having a genuine ability to, fearless and unashamedly, recognize your strengths and virtues, integrate them into the development of your own life..." In this guide, Dr. Walter Riso teaches us about the tools we need to help bolster our self-esteem; he teaches us to feed our self-love, freeing us from dependencies and stripping away all those things that weigh heavily on us. This, in turn, enables us to build our own happiness.
How high will you climb? John Maxwell says it all depends on your attitude. Nose up or nose down? Just as the angle of an airplane determines its altitude, so does the approach we take—to family, to work, to life in general—determine the attitude we present the world. The way we solve a problem is often secondary to the approach we take in facing the problem, our outward expression every bit as critical as the inward struggle. When the skies above appear stormy, how will you steer that internal plane we call attitude? With How High Will You Climb?, author John Maxwell presents detailed lessons on the single invaluable quality that has become a person’s primary force toward success. As the world around us delivers challenges—all the while marching on at its own inevitable pace—the attitude we choose affects each of us individually. And yes, an attitude can be chosen. Attitude is easy in times of joy and progress. But how do you handle the failures sure to interrupt the attainment of goals? What happens to us is often quite different from what happens in us. Calling the Bible a “handbook on attitude performance,” Maxwell emphasizes we are never actually flying solo. God supports our approach to problem solving and helps steer the attitude adjustments necessary to think correctly in a sometimes negative world. With a study guide to help evaluate and build upon your own flight angle, How High Will You Climb? establishes the fundamental elements for a steady, durable flight of life.
