Boundaries were never a topic of discussion while I was growing up. In fact, I learned some pretty unhealthy communication methods in my family of origin. As a result, I've spent many years trying to figure out how to have healthy adult relationships with others and how to uphold boundaries with myself.

Nedra Glover Tawwab's book covers those topics in depth, with kindness, compassion, and plenty of practical suggestions. In fact, that's what I liked about this book the most: the practical advice on how to communicate boundaries, uphold them and reinforce them when needed.

I found this book at a time in my life when I'd already learned most of this on my own through (sometimes painful) trial and error, but I would have benefited greatly from reading this in my 20s or early 30s.

Nooit meer drama. Door: Nedra Glover Tawwab.

Oh my god, wat een herkenbaar boek. Ik heb zo veel onderlijnd. Wow.

De ondertitel is: Leer grenzen aan te geven in ongezonde familierelaties. Daarom koos ik er voor om dit boek te lezen. Ik wist (na jaren therapie) dat ik problemen heb met mijn familie; nu weet ik (dankzij dit boek) dat ik absoluut niet de enige ben. Dat wist ik natuurlijk wel al enigszins maar negatief over je familie praten blijft toch nog steeds taboe. Daar brengt Nedra Glover Tawwab verandering in en daar ben ik haar heel dankbaar voor!

In het eerste deel leer je welke soorten van disfunctioneel gedrag voorkomen, in het tweede deel gaat het over jezelf genezen (misschien zelfs door afstand te nemen van iemand die niet wil veranderen) en in het laatste deel leer je problemen oplossen in verschillende relaties (broer-zus, met tantes, schoonfamilie, pluskinderen,…).

Aan het einde van elk hoofdstuk staan er een paar vragen, die je al schrijvend moet beantwoorden. Schrijvend opdat je zo een beter inzicht in de situatie en jezelf kan krijgen. Die heb ik nog niet gemaakt. Ik ben een beetje door het boek gevlogen; omdat het best confronterend om te lezen was. Ik vond het soms ook wat onoverzichtelijk, maar dat kan aan mijn mentale toestand hebben gelegen ;)

Ik heb in ieder geval heel veel herkend en onderlijnd. Dat alleen al maakt dit boek de moeite waard: ik voel me minder alleen.

I took my time with this book. The exercises at the end of each chapter were particularly valuable.
