Book Jacket Summary:
End the struggle, speak up for what you need, and experience the freedom of being truly yourself. Healthy boundaries. We all know we should have them–in order to achieve work/life balance, cope with toxic people, and enjoy rewarding relationships with partners, friends, and family. But what do “healthy boundaries” really mean–and how can we successfully express our needs, say “no,” and be assertive without offending others? Licensed counselor, sought-after relationship expert, and one of the most influential therapists on Instagram Nedra Glover Tawwab demystifies this complex topic for today’s world. In a relatable and inclusive tone, Set Boundaries, Find Peace presents simple-yet-powerful ways to establish healthy boundaries in all aspects of life. Rooted in the latest research and best practices used in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), these techniques help us identify and express our needs clearly and without apology–and unravel a root problem behind codependency, power struggles, anxiety, depression, burnout, and more.
Why I Chose This Book:
I would consider myself assertive when it comes to my career or working with others in the public, but while planning my wedding I realized when it comes to my family that is not always the case… I reached for this book to figure out how to stand up for myself in a healthy way, and learn how to even begin with boundaries (a topic extremely foreign to me).
I love Nedra, an awesome therapist & fellow NC girl!! Follow her on Instagram for a daily dose of reason! Really enjoyed and appreciated this book, she explains things very thoroughly and spells out the WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE & WHY of a solid boundary. She also delivers her message very clearly with stories and examples and how they apply to many different scenarios- work, family, friends, social media…. This book was filled with encouragement and positive reinforcement to build and live the life you want. Thank you Nedra for the breath of fresh air into my life!
