Editorial Reviews

"An insightful guide to navigating life's complexities."—Melody Beattie, bestselling author of Codependent No More, The Language of Letting Go."Stop Giving It Away is a crucial read for women suffering from an all-too-common problem: they take care of everyone in their lives except themselves. This personal and detailed book will inspire you to take your life back, one step at a time." —Dr. Andrea Bonior, Ph.D., author of The Friendship Fix"Since the 1970s, women's roles and choices have expanded exponentially, yet our historical training in self-sacrifice remains intact, undermining all our gains. In this straight-talking, realistic, compassionate, and deeply wise book, Cherilynn Veland nails the reasons behind our habit of "giving it away"-especially the often-ignored issue of how society and culture have shaped us to do so-and offers practical strategies for overcoming your own personal pull toward unhealthy self-sacrifice."—Stephanie Golden, author of Slaying the Mermaid: Women and the Culture of Sacrifice
