"Forever Sentimental, Vol IV - The Game of Hearts" By Kenyatta - Book Review


Visitors: 228

"Forever Sentimental Vol. IV" offers 67 valuable life lessons divided among four chapters covering different topics. Interwoven between each of the life lessons are beautiful, poignant poems that reflect upon the chapter. Some of the poetry pieces are beautiful love poems; others are reflective of painful relationships. They are all very stirring.

As a single person who exited an unhealthy relationship less than five months ago, I really found the lessons to be incredibly valuable. Kenyatta reminded me that I should expect to be respected, love and valued in a relationship that is moving forward. I know that this sounds like common sense, however, as he mentions in one of the life lessons, most people put on a very good front at the beginning of a relationship. When my ex-boyfriend started to revert to his true self, I was caught off guard and blamed myself for the decline of the relationship. Through “Forever Sentimental Vol. IV, " I gained a great deal of information that helped me to understand issues that contributed to my marriage failing, issues involving making poor decisions in choosing partners in my next relationships, what to look for in a healthy partnership, and what to look for in my next potential boyfriend. I really need to take the time to get to know my next potential mate. Establishing a friendship first is incredibly important in seeking a healthy partner.

While I am at a point in my life that I am fine with being single, I cannot wait to apply these lessons to current relationships in my life, and to the future ones. While the focus is on emotional relationships, the lessons can also be used to apply to friendship and family members. As I was reading through the lessons, I saw ways that I should have handled certain personal situations in my past that would have been assertive and self-respecting. I feel so empowered now!

Kenyatta presents a wealth of information for people at every stage in relationships, from a single person seeking a new mate, to someone in an unhealthy relationship, to someone who wants to add more to a good partnership. There is not one person who will not benefit from reading this because above all it teaches you to value yourself first. Kenyatta presents everything in a very caring manner. The warmth of his personality reaches out and touches you through the pages of “Forever Sentimental Vol. IV. " Do yourself a favor and read this book!
