Spotlight and Print Book Giveaway: "Stop Giving It Away," by Cherilynn Veland

Being caring and compassionate is important, but too many women allow the weight of others’ needs to press so hard on them that they find they often fail to speak up for what they want and need. And women do this all the time. It’s time for these women to stop worrying quite so much about everyone else—and start taking care of themselves.

In Stop Giving It Away, therapist Cherilynn Veland utilizes her twenty-plus years of counseling experience to untangle what binds so many women to other people’s needs, wants, and expectations, and to build a case for what these women can do to make changes that will help them live more fulfilling personal and professional lives. Stop Giving It Away is a personal toolkit to help readers recognize unhealthy behaviors, develop healthy relationship strategies, and set good personal boundaries.
