“Boundaries” Book Review

So, here is one more book review, this time, about a book about setting boundaries, especially with other people.

Boundaries is about setting boundaries and don’t let anyone violate your boundaries and your personal limits.

Here is a book description, extracted from Amazon
“Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances — Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions — Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others — Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God’s will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator — Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask:

– Can I set limits and still be a loving person?
– What are legitimate boundaries?
– What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries?
– How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?
– Aren’t boundaries selfish?
– Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries?

Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.”

John how long did it take you to be consistent with working out because I’m finding it hard to even do 3 times a week but I feel like I can do much more! Also, I feel unmotivated when working out and I hate it.

Aurelian Spodarec says:

Love the ADS from Tai! Christmas is over, the other advertisers had spend all their money in Christmas, while Tai was saving them, and now that YT is ad free, meaning there aren’t many advertisers paying, not as in Christmas, Tai just releases his budget and will get another few million of subs! YAY lol

You’re never going to block him 😀 Even with Ad block, his head will pop up xD

Greg Small says:

Thanks for this. I don’t believe I have any problems with boundaries, but you’ve mentioned it twice now so I gotta read it lol. It’s sitting in the wishlist, rip. Great review!

Peter Rangelov says:

God forbid you are offended while learning something useful.

Marko Novakovic says:

religion is striping human from natural and personal desires (this causes frustrations) and its dangerous in many ways

Tim Boland says:

hair looks good man

Rochelle Davis says:

I wasn’t a Christian for many years and my family had no boundaries and had all the issues stated. I’m now a Catholic and it’s through my faith I have actually learned about healthy boundaries ect. Just food for thought 😉

J REE says:

Radioactive FistFoot says:

I don’t believe in gods, but I’m gonna check this book out. Thanks for the recommendation, John.

1godlessmonkey says:

Love the book review. Please, keep’em coming!

Bradley Maravalli says:

Not to be mean, but I was hoping for a review of the book. Instead, it was 3 minutes on “beware it’s Christian based” and 3 minutes on “you need boundaries, but I won’t tell you how to set them.”

OrbGoblin says:

Thanks for the warning John. I got it a while ago after you mentioned it in a vid and I was a little pissed off at first being as I didn’t realize it was so Christian. That said, this is a good book and there’s enough good material in it to warrant reading if the theology is odious to you.

Marko Novakovic says:

there are not links for guilt and and giving money to family when you point with finger

Haku Sansaku says:

For half of your review I thought “man get to the point”.
And it does not seem like a review but more of a quick summary.

So why is the christian methology bad in this book?
You have awesome arms by the way 🙂
