Abstract
Knowing when your personal boundaries are violated - and what to do about it when they are - isn't a simple skill. It requires a surprising amount of self-awareness that only a firm sense of your own value and limits can provide.
If you feel like you have trouble saying no to others, at work or at home, or if you feel your life being squandered by good but unintentional activities and relationships, this book can help you establish more effective boundaries. The authors explain the differences between boundaries and walls, explore a variety of boundary problems, and help you assess your own boundaries and make necessary adjustments. Throughout, they teach you how to view yourself as a treasure to be protected, so that you can learn how to enjoy a life of evolving authenticity.
