Set Boundaries, Find Peace

Set Boundaries, Find Peace by Nedra Glover Tawwab


Book Summary:

End the struggle, speak up for what you need, and experience the freedom of being truly yourself.

Healthy boundaries. We all know we should have them–in order to achieve work/life balance, cope with toxic people, and enjoy rewarding relationships with partners, friends, and family. But what do “healthy boundaries” really mean–and how can we successfully express our needs, say “no,” and be assertive without offending others?

Licensed counselor, sought-after relationship expert, and one of the most influential therapists on Instagram Nedra Glover Tawwab demystifies this complex topic for today’s world. In a relatable and inclusive tone, Set Boundaries, Find Peace presents simple-yet-powerful ways to establish healthy boundaries in all aspects of life. Rooted in the latest research and best practices used in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), these techniques help us identify and express our needs clearly and without apology–and unravel a root problem behind codependency, power struggles, anxiety, depression, burnout, and more.

My Review:

Set Boundaries, Find Peace book

Therapist and author Nedra Glover Tawwab demystifies boundaries and explains what they are, how to set them, and how to navigate them in the real world (which for many of us, is easier said than done!)

“Focusing on how others might respond is one way we ruminate, which impacts our ability to act.” 

Her knowledge feels endless and her advice gives you actionable steps that can make an immediate difference. Her writing style is compassionate but also unapologetic and she doesn’t tiptoe around the facts. 👏⁣

We all have things that have made us into who we are today, and acknowledging these things allows us to reclaim our inner peace and have a plan to move forward, no matter the circumstances we face in the future. ⁣

“I’d rather deal with the discomfort in the short term than resentment and frustration in the long term.” 

Set Boundaries Find Peace
⁣I could go on and on about this one, but I would be here all day. If you are intrigued by any of this, I highly recommend following along with @nedratawwab on social media, where you can get a great understanding of just some of her concepts.
