“Boundaries define us. They define what is me and what is not me. A boundary shows me where I end and someone else begins, leading me to a sense of ownership.”
~Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend in the book Boundaries.

I haven’t read any other book more than this book, other than my bible. I believe boundaries should be “taught” in the public school system starting in kindergarten. Teaching them to respect other people’s things, feelings and bodies. Defining what it means to be a good friend and eliminate the word “bully”. It’s about their behavior, not who they are as human beings.

I believe everyone has the capability of change, owning their behaviors and making better choices.

We need somewhere to start and this book is chock-full of ways to improve in different areas of life with friends, spouse, coworkers, family, children and most importantly “self.”
