This review is from: Where to Draw the Line: How to Set Healthy Boundaries Every Day (Paperback)
I felt that I needed to write a review for this book because I found incredibly helpful for me and I think it would be helpful for others too. For me, this book and The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron was the natural progression from Toxic Parents by Susan Forward. After Toxic Parents, one of the many things I had come to realise is that my childhood was one in which I grew up with absolutely no healthy boundaries whatsoever. Obviously this can have a lot of negative impact as an adult in many different ways.
The author is a very experienced counsellor and this book offers insight and a practical guide for every day situations and different types of relationships with others and even with the world. The author is compassionate and no-nonsense at the same time. I appreciate that the author really breaks boundary issues down on particular subjects. Maybe some readers might find that too obvious, but for people who grew up with no healthy boundaries it is absolutely necessary for the author to do this.
I found this book to be a valuable resource for working on my recovery and I know it is a book I will go back to again for reference. I hope this review helps other people on their own recovery journeys.
