Earlier this year while I was still working for Walmart every day I was reminded of my teen years because of all the unnecessary drama. One day I went home and I busted through my garage door extremely frustrated from my work day, so my roomie, being the intuitive and ingenious creature that she is, loaned me a little book: Unf*ck Your Boundaries by Dr. Faith G. Harper. Let me tell you, it’s made my life better because I now have a better grasp on my own boundaries! I have always struggled with communication, but I honestly think that this book can help anyone who is struggling! Harper goes into amazing detail, but always keeps you interested. Not to mention the illustrations in this book are also incredible and definitely helped me visualize some of Harper's points! My roomie lending me this book was the push I needed to finally realize that boundaries are a need and they deserve to be unf*cked! Cheers to having the freedom to speak your mind and draw the line! — From Bianca's Picks
Boundaries are the ways we communicate our needs. They are what allow us to feel safe among strangers, in everyday interactions, and in our closest relationships. When we have healthy boundaries, we have a strong foundation in an uncertain world. And when someone crosses your boundaries, or you cross someone else's, the results range from unsettling to catastrophic. In this book, bestselling author Dr. Faith Harper offers a full understanding of issues of boundaries and consent, how we can communicate and listen more effectively, and how to survive and move on from situations where our boundaries are violated. Along the way, you'll learn when and how to effectively say "no" (and "yes"), troubleshoot conflict, recognize abuse, and respect your own and others' boundaries like a pro. You'll be amazed at how much these skills improve your relationships with friends, strangers, coworkers, and loved ones.
