This insightful book explains why so many women feel responsible for the happiness of others and why they strive to be perfectly attractive, competent and giving and feel like failures if they don't measure up. It helps women learn to feel good about and to take care of themselves.

I found this book extremely helpful and relevant. I had been trying to understand my own strugglesas a wife, mother, daughter, and sisterby looking at my family of birth background.

These writers/researchers/therapists treat the issue of over-responsibility in women as a cultural phenomenon that most women struggle with. I found this very freeing and helpful.

The book addresses the problem of women's tendency to take too much responsibility for relationships--especially in the family. The writers offer sound and highly effective counsel for how to begin to hear and use one's own voice, and to allow others to take responsibility for themselves.
