From the author of the self-help hit, Adult Children of Emotionally
Immature Parents, this essential guide offers daily, practical ways
to help you heal the invisible wounds caused by immature parents,
nurture self-awareness, trust your emotions, improve relationships,
and stop putting others' needs ahead of your own. If you grew up
with an emotionally immature, unavailable, or selfish parent, you
probably still struggle with anger, sadness, resentment, or shame.
As a child, your emotional needs were not met, your feelings were
dismissed, and you likely took on adult levels of responsibility in
an effort to compensate for your parent's behavior. Somewhere along
the way, you lost your sense of self. And without this strong sense
of self, you may feel like your own well-being isn't valuable. In
this compassionate guide-written just for you, not them-you'll find
tips and tools to help you set boundaries with others, honor and
validate your emotions, and thrive in the face of life's
challenges. You'll discover how to protect yourself from hurtful
behavior, stop making excuses for others' limitations, forge
healthier relationships, and feel more confident in your life. Most
importantly, you'll learn how to stop putting others' needs before
your own, and manage daily stressors with competence, clarity, and
optimism. Self-care means honoring and respecting the self. But
when you grow up with emotionally immature parents, you are taught
that setting limits is selfish and uncaring. You are taught to seek
approval instead of authenticity in relationships. And you are
taught that empathy and emotional awareness are liabilities, rather
than assets. But there's another way to go through life-one in
which you can take care of yourself, first and foremost. Let this
book guide you toward a new way of being.
