Healthy Me, Happy We

Transforming Relationships With Yourself and Others

We hear that relationships are hard, but are they supposed to be THIS hard?
Does every day feel stressful and it’s only getting worse?
Do you expect that relationships require you to sacrifice your happiness?
Do you try to improve things, but nothing you do seems to help?

Whether challenges appear in your relationships with a romantic partner, family members, friends, or coworkers, you have the power to change them from difficult to thriving-from unhealthy to healthy. At the core, you’ll have to examine, heal, and transform the relationship with yourself.

Ted Smith shares his personal experience navigating unhealthy relationships with a romantic partner and with himself-plus the healing and transformation that followed-to help readers make positive changes to the relationships in their own lives.

In this book, you will learn how to:

  • Recognize and understand characteristics of unhealthy relationships with others
  • Identify areas of opportunity in the relationship with yourself
  • Navigate the healing journey
  • Transform relationships with yourself and others to be happier and healthier

This was such a great book written by one of my good friends. (And I am picky about books, friend or no) He delved deep into some pretty serious issues such as addiction and abuse. I'm not going to lie, it was hard to read at some points because it becomes more real when you know the people being described, but I felt like I was having a conversation with Ted and that he was finally saying what he wished he could have said all these years. His insights and self-awareness take this book to another level. I highly recommend this book for anyone to read because I guarantee everyone will get something worthwhile out of it.

Thank you for this book! It’s exactly what I needed at the time I needed it. My biggest takeaway is I need to put on my own oxygen mask first because when I prioritize myself my relationships are at a their best. Also, the best way to deal with difficult people is to remember the difficult person is me. When I deal with my own crap everything else falls into place. The best compliment I give this book is I’m giving my young adult daughters copies so their can start off their adult relationships in the most constructive way possible.

A quick, conversational read

Healthy Me, Happy We reads like a conversation with an old friend. Author Ted Smith manages to delve into some dark topics while maintaining the tone of someone close who is only concerned for your wellbeing. His wit keeps things light-hearted (where appropriate) and his ability to tie his own experiences into the concepts helps bring a human aspect to a potentially challenging subject matter.

I found the personal struggles & triumphs of the author to be incredibly relatable and I think I'll find myself going back to this again to re-read & remind myself of the importance of self-care/self-worth.

Ted approaches a heavy subject like toxic relationships in an honest and vulnerable way. He takes the reader on a journey where he provides insight and encouragement to “do the work” of prioritizing your own well-being. It’s both thought provoking and inspiring, and you will continue to reflect on it’s message days after finishing the book.

Great perspective on healthy relationships!

I just read Ted Smith’s “Healthy Me, Happy We,” after listening to his experience as an author through one of my life coaching groups. Having grown up in a dysfunctional family environment, some of the emotional pain Smith dealt with in his primary relationship reminded me of what I observed at home. Some of it hit close to home when I realized I was turning a lot of anger toward myself, and treating myself badly, even as I bent over backwards to treat others well! As I finished reading this book, I re-connected with my determination to only stay in any relationship (work, family, or dating) where others give me the respect and dignity that any person deserves. And most importantly, to treat myself with respect and dignity always!
