Review of excellent book on Boundaries

This is a review of the book: “Boundaries: When to say yes, How to say No To Take Control of Your Life” available at the Caregiver’s Library, North Shore Community Resources office.

The authors begin by defining boundaries: a sense of knowing when I end and you begin.  They use the metaphor of house property: what is inside your “property” is yours, and what is outside your property remains outside.

The book is written from a Christian perspective, with Bible quotes throughout.

Authors Cloud and Townsend quote the Serenity Prayer:

“God grant me serenity, to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

Finally the authors quote the Golden Rule : “Love your neighbour as yourself” as being a central part of boundary setting.

A good read, even if you are not religious.

Happy reading!
