Need to confront a difficult reactive person while defusing fear based reactions in them without losing self respect?
Reviewed in the United States on August 16, 2016
I have grown and healed in ways I never realized I needed to due to the boundaries series. I have come out of codependency and been able to practice self respect and healing from deeply rooted fears of abandonment and invalidation, but as not everyone is on the same path as I am I have come into relationship with different levels of defensiveness. From my family of origin to my romantic life, conflict/boundaries has been interpreted negatively at times and other times I saw fruits, after reading this book I I have implemented new skills to not only have my own boundaries but also encourage security in the person I am confronting heart. If you are looking to confront someone who is difficult and reactive, understanding how to speak to their fear while respecting the heart of the healthy confrontation will create bridges to healing in both of you. Totally worth the read and I couldn't put it down because I knew this coming conversation was going to be hard and love was more important than pride.
