About this Book

Book Summary

However you feel about love, this book will show you that your feelings are okay, and most important, that you are not alone.

To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.
- Oscar Wilde

Love is such a mystery — sometimes painful, other times glorious, always challenging. This book will guide you to understand and sort out your myriad feelings and experiences.

However you feel about love — love it, hate it, wish you knew, wish you didn't, or feel too scared and confused to even try to find out — this book will show you that your feelings are okay, and most important, that you are not alone. In it you'll find letters from other teens and Kimberly's responses to their questions, concerns and confusion and you'll get a wide-ranging perspective on love and relationships.

Kimberly receives hundreds of letters a week from teens addressing every possible concern - love, sex, drugs, parental problems, cliques, fitting in - and through this communication, Kimberly has developed an empathy that teens throughout the world sense from her work on Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul.

I am my own worst enemy. I would not tolerate anyone treating me the way I treat myself. I would leave the room or hang up the phone if anyone dared to say the things to me that I say to myself. I second-guess myself, lecture myself, judge myself and sometimes even punish myself. As for compassion, I tend to save that for my friends. At least that's how it used to be. My approach to myself is improving because I have ...
