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:
- Fear of loss of love, abandonment
- Fear of other's anger
- Fear of loneliness
- Need for approval
- Overidentification of another's loss
