Do you recognize this? Having a relationship where the ‘energy management’ shows an imbalance. A relationship that seems so infinitely exhausting and from which you do not dare to step out amongst others because outsiders won’t believe your partner actually behaves different when he is only with you?
The Dutch book Destructive relations reviewed (translation editor) by Jan Storms is according to critic Beatrijs Ritsema: ‘An eye-opener to people who are in an insane relationship.’
To people who are actually in an insane relationship this book can be quite confronting but at the same time empowering and encouraging to step out of this life energy consuming relationship.
A destructive relationship can happen to anyone. A mental disturbance isn’t always noticeable on the outside. Destructive persons – psychopaths – often pretend to be better than they in fact are. Psychopathy is a serious mental disturbance, with a main trait: a seriously disturbed conscience. Psychopathy is widespread, is being considerable underestimated and causes serious social damage.
This Dutch book on destructive relationship informs about what psychopathy is, how to recognize psychopathic behaviour, provides techniques how to protect you against it and pointers to recover from damage you or someone around you got. Special attention is given to children who are in a co-dependence to a psychopath. The book closes with tips for social workers and recommendations with respect to protection.
Recognizing psychopathic behaviour, protecting yourself from it and restoring the damage.

He is mainly focused on the possibilities towards a positive development of the consciousness and applies the acquirements of modern and Vedic psychology.
