First published in 1991, BOUNDARIES introduced readers to the important psychological need for creating literal and figurative limits turning author Anne Katherine's book into an instant bestseller. Some boundaries are obvious , such as the actual space surrounding an individual. Being shoved, kissed or touched suggestively are all ways in which a boundary can be crossed. Other boundaries, emotional boundaries, are harder to see, but they are just as important to our well-being. Katherine explains how setting clear boundaries can bring order to your life of chaos, strengthen relationships, and enhance both mental and physical health. With real-life stories illustrating the repercussions of not setting limits, and the benfits of protecting personal boundaries and respecting those of others, this edition is useful for anyone who's been violated, victimised, or belittled by friends, parents, partners, bosses, or colleagues.
