Boundaries Audiobook Summary
Is your life out of control? Do people take advantage of you? Do you have trouble saying no? Christians often focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limitations. Have you ever found yourself wondering: * Can I set limits and still be a loving person? * What are my legitimate boundaries? * How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? * Why do I feel guilty when I consider setting boundaries? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend give you biblically based answers to these and other tough questions, showing you how to set healthy boundaries with parents, spouses, children, friends, coworkers, and even with yourself. You’ll see vital principles of boundaries at work as Drs. Cloud and Townsend take you through a day in the life of ‘Sherrie’–first as she lives with almost no boundaries, then as she begins to apply proper boundaries with others in her life.
Boundaries Audiobook Reviews
[Note: although I’m not religious, I still found a ton of value out of this book]
Cloud and Townsend do a great job of using boundaries to illustrate why we grew up certain ways. For example, you probably know someone who has a money problem. He spends recklessly and doesn’t really think about the consequences of his actions. This can be traced back to his parents never establishing their own boundaries. They would always bail the son out whenever he ran out of money and tell him to be better next time. They never let him “feel” the consequences. And so he never learned.
There’s so many other brilliant examples of the importance of boundaries and how they affect the people around us.
I learned a lot about myself through the sections that detail boundaries with friends, family, and work. The one that impacted me the most was the section on Boundaries with Myself. I grew up with parents who while loving, also created situations for me where I was not able to feel the consequences, and so I behave in certain ways that I’m trying to fix.
When I was first referred to this book, I wasn’t told this book had a heavy religious undertone (the conflict of setting boundaries and being a good person in the eye of God). I’m not religious, so the biblical references didn’t really matter to me much, but that doesn’t mean I can’t learn from them. The concepts themselves made sense to me and I would recommend this book to anyone who believes they have boundary problems.
