For those who often “lose themselves” in relationships. This book deconstructs controlling patterns that play out in enmeshed relationships and those who find themselves people-pleasing.
This is a book of empowerment and freedom. It provides psycho-education and tools for people who find themselves resentful of others due to lacking their own boundaries
What I love most about this book is that it is a life-changer. It helps create new patterns in relationships. It increases self-awareness and improves thought processes and understanding of self.
There may be triggering themes of spirituality, which are suggested as a road to recovery. As I always say, take what you want and leave the rest.
This book will improve relationships and help you gain self-awareness.
