Boundaries by Dr, Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend - Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle.  Simply stated, a boundary is a property line marking what we are responsible for and what we are not responsible for in ourselves and others.  Boundaries impact many areas of our lives; they help us set limits with ourselves and others, they help us own our feelings and not someone else's, they give us freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions.  I recommend any book in the boundary series; Boundaries in Marriage, Boundaries with Kids, Boundaries with Teens, Boundaries in Dating.  To get your own boundaries mentor check out https://www.boundaries.me/
