Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend

I read Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend many years ago, but we are constantly dealing with difficult personality types and is worth reviewing again.

One of the things that is covered in the book is how to set limits instead of remaining a prisoner to the wishes of another. Boundaries is a book based on biblical principals and guides the reader in how to allow others to accept consequences for their actions and love others without rescuing them from destructive behavior.

Preventing us from setting boundaries:

  1. Fear of loss of love, abandonment
  2. Fear of other's anger
  3. Fear of loneliness
  4. Guilt
  5. Need for approval
  6. Overidentification of another's loss

I need to read this one. It’s been on my radar for years. I have the Boundries in Marriage book and need to read it too.
