Honestly between this book and my therapist... it showed me how much I put other people's needs before mine. Everyone in my life comes before me every single time. Husband, kids and now even our grandchildren. I never just take time for me, this book helped to show me. I am useless to my family if I am run down.... and its okay to put me first sometimes. I have never said no, that is something big I need to work on. This book was a big eye opener for me and I enjoyed it very much.
