Aayush & Oshin’s verdict of BURNING DESIRE
Title – Burning Desire: The Psychopath and the Girl in Black Prada Shoes Part I
Author – M.L. Stark
👦🏻Aayush’s verdict ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Have you ever been in a relationship with a psychopath? Chances are, even if you did, you would never know it. Psychopaths are cunning charmers and master manipulators, to the point where you start to accept the most extreme behaviors as normal. Everyone should read this book, even if they have not personally been in an intimate relationship with a Psychopath.
Overall this is one of the best resources I have read for people who are healing from encounters with sociopaths/narcissists. It is written in a kind, caring voice; and it is super precise and enlightening in all of its descriptions.
This book is not just about recovering from dating a psychopath. This book is about human relationships, empathy, and self-preservation. It’s about protecting yourself from toxic relationships and forgiving yourself when you fall apart. I recommended it to a friend because she’s been struggling to find post-break up answers after years of dating someone she now suspects is a sociopath. She immediately loved it and felt validated.
Written from the heart, it is the first guide for survivors written by a survivor, offering hope for healing and thriving after psychopathic abuse. Say goodbye to the chaos, self-doubt, and victimization. You are free!
👩🏻Oshin’s verdict ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I have to say that this little book really does have it all! It simply tells you how it is with the psychopath. How they think and how they do not care nor worry about what you nor anyone else thinks. No empathy, no care other than for themselves.
I liked it because it reiterated author’s real experience. This book has simple yet powerful ways to embrace the entire experience and recover from it. It discusses the strengths of empathetic people that psychopaths lack and will never have the ability to understand.
This book was very hard for me to put down and as I read each page I found myself nodding in a agreement with its text. As it is written by a survivor of emotional abuse, I appreciated it greatly as if the author was right beside me telling me their story and what to look out for should it happen again and the reasons why we fall these certain types of people.
This book is the last thing your abuser wants you to read. Quick read and provides practical advice on healing as well as walking you through revelations you may not have gotten to yet. The books reads like you’re talking to a compassionate friend who is invested in your healing and helping you through your journey to feel safe and whole again by sharing her own story.
I recommend this book wholeheartedly as it has helped me to overcome one of the most painful experiences I have had in my life. I’m eternally grateful that this book exists and even more, after reading “Part I” mentioned in the title.
I’ll be waiting for more from M.L Stark!
