The Must-Have Guide For Learning to Live By Your Own Terms, Even If Everyone Around You Wants to Control You

This is the hilarious and illuminating guide for people who are trying to develop better boundaries with difficult people. Impossible to please without going crazy, some people will pry, nag, pressure, and judge until their victim has caved. People with poor boundaries often do not realize that they have done nothing wrong given that they often feel so guilty. By learning to have better boundaries, people can protect their free time, say no to things they do not like, deal with difficult in-laws, relatives, coworkers, bosses, employees, spouses, children, neighbors, and friends.

Author Tess M. Stevens spent much of her life being judged and slandered and then guilt tripped about her “disloyalty” to these same people. Disloyal acts included: having other friends, having a job, taking time to exercise and shower, sleeping more than six hours, not doing other people's homework, refusing to end friendships that were not personally approved by the guilt-tripper, getting married, having children, naming those children herself, and doing only her own housework.

The author idiotically spent decades trying to please people whose favorite pastime was looking at whatever she was doing and assigning a nefarious motive to it. One day, she stumbled upon a cache of things written about her between several of the power players in her circle. Upon seeing that she was considered everything from a neglectful parent to the unwitting wife of a closeted man, she finally understood what her “boundaries mentor” had been saying to her for more than a decade: their judgment had nothing to do with her. The accusations were literally not founded on reality, they were just entertainment for judgmental people to pass around.

After spending a week feeling like she had been sucker-punched, Stevens started putting up boundaries that should have been in place long before. She stopped explaining herself, apologizing for imperfections, and doing things for other people that they should have been doing for themselves. In short, she stopped living her life like a spineless jellyfish. If she could do it, so can anyone else.

  • If you are tired of living your life by terms set by people who clearly do not have your best interests at heart: this book is for you.

  • If you are tired of being exhausted by the demanding, ungrateful, and entitled people in your life: this book is for you.

  • If you want to have time for yourself, peace in your home, good friends, and no drama: this book is for you.

On the other hand

  • If you prefer to labor under the delusion that you are going to “ruin” your relationships if you stand up for yourself: do not read this book. It will force you to see the truth of these relationships and of your participation in their unhealthy dynamic.

  • If you enjoy drama and endlessly wondering why “you are always there for people who are never there for you”: do not read this book.

  • This highly organized guide will give you dozens of scripts and methods that you need to stop acting like a jellyfish and start living with dignity. After years of being a people-pleaser, you may need help finding the words you need. This guide will show you how to find the words to protect yourself. Life is too short to let boundary violators suck you dry. Take the first step toward freedom today.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Buy this book! 30. März 2014

    This book has helped me out so much. I can't thank the author enough for making all of this helpful information so clear and easily accessible.

    No longer will I be giving in to every last desire of the controlling people in my life. I feel like I've learned the skills to do what I want, and to say no - skills that are more valuable than I could have imagined.

    I'm going to tell you, right now, to buy this book. I know I said the book will teach you how to say no, but I promise that this is something you want to say yes to ;)

    5.0 von 5 Sternen You MUST Read This 2. April 2014
    Von Meghan - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    ‘Skip the Guilt Trip’ is one of the most eye-opening, deeply enjoyable must-reads ever to come out of Kindle’s woodwork. It teaches us about the value of being in control of our lives—and how exactly that can be achieved.

    At the heart of Tess Stevens’ book is one vital issue: self-respect. The author thoroughly strives to make the reader understand the value of self-awareness and knowing your place in the world, and learning to assert that to others. In this day and age, we usually have to deal with a diversity of people who are coming from different personal backgrounds, social stratum and cultures, and dealing with them on a daily basis can be a recipe for constant misery—it’s so easily to end up being a push-over and relegated to a corner. This book, therefore, opens our eyes to the shining truth that we all have personal boundaries, and it is our right to assert that, especially to those who seem to have no idea that such boundaries exist. And the awesome bonus: Tess Stevens is actually hilariously witty—she writes with that light-hearted grace and straddles the delicate balance between humor and seriousness—the result is a book you can laugh with and chuckle over pretty truthful things, and cheer for that most important person in the world: you.

    Overall, when I say that ‘Skip the Guilt Trip’ will help you change your life for the better, I’m not even kidding. By staking your claim on having a good life and stopping mincing words about your personal boundaries and never backing down, all the other positive consequences—happiness, deeper sense of fulfilment—come as the natural result of the changes you implement in your life. So get a copy of this important book today—it will also be an awesome gift to people you love and care about. A well-deserved five-star rating for this one.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Well worth buying, 31. März 2014
    Von Emma Parker - Veröffentlicht auf

    Well worth buying, I was engrossed from the minute I opened it. Easy to read, great examples and real scenarios that make what could be dull and tedious more informative enjoyable. After my first read I feel much more confident and better placed to tackle those difficult situations with those awkward individuals we all know and don't love... At the very least I know it isn't me as much as I thought it was originally. It's also made me much more aware of those things that I do that others find difficult. I wish there was more information on the specific boundary issues that come up at work. The scenarios given were good, but I was hungry for more. Here's hoping the next book in the series focuses on that!

    Wow, I so needed this book!! I have struggled most of my life with trying to please everyone around me so when I read the description of this book I felt like I was reading about myself. I’m so fed up with being used by people who do not have my best interest at heart! It has taken me a long time to realize the difference between those who deserve my help and those who don’t, but even then I didn’t know how to say no. That’s where this little gem made all the difference.

    The author speaks from a personal perspective and really helps you to understand why you feel taken advantage of. Hint, it’s because you are being taken advantage of!! The more you give to a parasitic relationship the more they will take. So how do you stop this cycle? How do you grow a backbone? Well it won’t happen overnight but armed with material like this witty and insightful book you can rid yourself of that awful feeling of guilt and failure that others put on you. You are the only one who can change these dynamics in your relationships and this guide shows you how to do it. I will forever be grateful I found this book! I’ve already purchased extra copies for my sister and my husband.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Me: Old dog, new trick 28. Februar 2014
    Von Perry - Veröffentlicht auf

    So imagine being middle-aged and realizing that you don't know squat about living your life with effective boundaries. I knew that *I* was causing myself trouble in certain situations (or at least not warding it off), but couldn't zero in on the problem. Not just in my personal life, but also at work.

    My whole idea of "boundaries" was summed up by "you have to say NO sometimes." It's so much more than that. It has to do with understanding where your comfort zone is, what your rights are (to your time, your energy, your privacy), and what you want your future to look like. Tess Stevens has put together this little missile of a book that helps to unravel the mystery of "HOW did I just get myself into that?" or "How did I come away from that conversation feeling so rotten?" I'm starting to get it now: Boundaries are not only necessary, they're good for EVERYONE. They really can make me a more effective human being. If you're already good at knowing and living your own boundaries, you'll love this book as a confirmation that you're doing it right!

    Bonus: Tess is funny. Not the schmaltzy humor you see in "self-help" drivel. She's sharply funny and has the battle-scars to make her credible in this stuff. Her examples of dialogue are especially awesome.
