I really did not enjoy the speaker for this book. His "voices" for the characters in the stories were agonizing to get through. His inflection, tone & all around story telling left me wanting to pull my hair out. I really wanted to absorb the information in this book yet I had a difficult time concentrating.
My husband has the print version so I plan to read the book.
I will listen to this again, as I believe that the changes in me will be life long and I will need reminders of some of the areas I tend to "give in" on.
I always knew that I couldn't "fix" others, but also didn't realize how much of my hurts were really not the fault of others but rather my inability to recognize when my boundaries were not respected, as well as the books ability to explain "why" I lack boundaries in some areas.
I'm not sure.
How to effectively establish boundaries rather than just wondering why people "walk all over me". I have tended to want to help people, but I help to the point of allowing people to use me.
Even if you don't think you have a boundary issue, I really recommend this book. It also explains others reactions to things and helps you realize that their responses are issue of their boundary issues. It helps to place their responses in perspective. It also helps you to be stronger when people use the "guilt" tactic on you for your personal boundaries.
This book perfectly explains the importance of boundaries and how to attain them. This book has given me insight to many of the difficulties I have and now I have the knowledge to change. I recommend this book to every Christian. It can be applied to all walks of life.
Some parts are a little boring, but overall, the things taught in this book are things I wish I knew 20 years ago. They are so fundamental to life!
