A friend brought this terrific book to our attention and we have it in the store for you. As it says in the 'how to use this book' section,
it deals with what causes us to feel secure and insecure, and how knowing our limits can help strengthen our intimate relations.
This is an excerpt from the section on '
"Our worth is not available for barter. We are human and of value in a way that cannot be measured in dollars, time, favors, casseroles, or shoulders to cry on. We are valuable because we are here, and at any time we can be a beneficial organism on the planet by honoring our lives as sacred. Boundaries are our way to express our knowledge of our worth. They say "My time and energy are needed here and there, but not well spent over there doing that. Endeavoring in that area does not yield qualitative results that make sense. Leave that to someone else."
