I'm only about 1/6 of the way through the book, but it is really helping me to be able to see myself in a new light. My friend has been recommending this book to me for several weeks now, and I didn't want to listen. Who knows why. Sometimes we don't want to admit that we have a problem in a certain area or areas. But often others can see our problems much more clearly than we can. The key is being open in our spirits enough to allow someone else to point out those problems without getting "prickly."
I don't want to be unapproachable. Someone recently told me that I was, and I didn't like it one bit. (Here's me being completely transparent with whoever wants to read about it! ;) And, to be honest, I don't think they were completely accurate, but I did think about what they said. I thought about it, tried to discern if there were any truth in it, and then decided that there was at least a smidgen of truth in there. When I feel hurt, I tend to be unapproachable. That's not a good thing, but I don't know how to fix it just yet. I'm working on it.
And this book is one of the ways I'm working on it. I think that we all need certain boundaries in our lives.
So, if you're up for a good read, and you have relationships that need some help, this book just might be for you!
