Item Description...
This book is for the openhearted and sensitive soul who is prone to losing his or her boundaries in relationships. Others may easily hurt this individual. Such a person may have difficulty expressing true feelings because of the fear that others will react negatively towards them. They may be afraid that if they speak their truth, others will become angry and abandon them, criticize, judge, invalidate or send them on a guilt trip. As a result, the "self" or soul of this person may be imprisoned by dependency on others and the fear of how others may react. If this describes you, How to Grow a Second Skin for Your Soul may offer the help you need to emancipate your soul. This book can help guide you through the process of the development of healthy boundaries so that you become solid within your "self." In truth, this book may be just the tonic you need to set yourself free to live fully, perhaps for the very first time.

Life Changing Book  Dec 6, 2006
This is a book that I request many of my new psychotherapy clients to read, as it has proved powerful enough to transform many of my clients' lives.

So many people long for help to outgrow unhealthy family relationships, yet they don't know how. Ordinarily, for most people, such relationships repeat throughout their life-cycle and this can be seen in painful interactions they have may have with critical or controlling bosses, envious or competitive co-workers, unfaithful or hurtful partners.

Employing both evocative analogies and practical real-life examples, Dr. Burgess sheds light on what comprises healthy relationships by characterizing individuals as "yes", "no" or "maybe' categories of people. It is through the use of this unique paradigm that she helps readers to begin to identify and avoid hurtful others (or alternatively to protect themselves in interactions with such people when they cannot be avoided). She also encourages readers to reconsider before appealing to others who are consistently withholding or disrespectful, those whom she refers to as "dry wells."

Such a book empowers readers to such a great extent that when they are done, they are able to heal and actually move beyond the narcissitic wounding they experienced in their family of origin. In this way, they find, perhaps for the first time in their lives, a means to steer clear of unhealthy relationships. Moreover, they not only find themselves in a better position to access their own greater intuition, but also to pursue the life goals that are truly right for them.
Better and cheaper than therapists!  Sep 1, 2006
So good I cant put it down. One morning I read one chapter that explained so much to me, I felt so product I went back to bed for a few hours. Many of my friends claim to have answers for some of the gliches in my personality; and they are actually therapists- they are each getting a copy of this book because it had more anwers for me than them combined :-) Enjoy!
LIFE CHANGING!!!!  Aug 5, 2006
This books is truly amazing and lifechanging because it helps one to see the clearer picture. Someone once said insanity is "doing something over and over again expecting to get different results." A majority of my life I was a people pleaser, especially trying to please no-category people (read the book for the definition of yes-no-maybe category people). This book has been very validating for me because I was able to change my perspective. No longer do I have to go around quenching my anger. I can express my feelings in a helpful manner and stay neutral - that's where the power is - in neutrality. I've been empowered to live a richer life by using some of the techniques in the book. And looking at my life now, I'm surrounded by higher vibrating people. No longer am I a mad woman, expecting to get different results by doing the same thing. I've tried a different approach (thanks to the author) and my life is a wonderful reflection of my new mindset. Woohoo:-)
A Comforting Way of Handling Interpersonal Relationships  Jul 17, 2006
This is a book I have close at hand. When I am upset about personal relationships, I reread sections. Dr. Burgess explains how depression and poor coping skills originate and gives exercises for initiating the healing process within ourselves. Dr. Burgess teaches forgiveness of ourselves and others. That is always comforting to me -- that I can heal myself without condemning another person.
good source for hurting hearts  Oct 13, 2005
This book gave me good tactics to counteract negative people in my life and helped me get through some rough patches with some individuals. I realized it's okay to have a sensitive heart but also how to protect it from negative individuals that are likely to invalidate/hurt me.
