Helpful Books for WSes
This book helped me understand myself...how my behaviors stemmed from my irrational thinking and what caused the wrong or what I'd consider in hindsight "insane" thinking...

Great thread! Seems like we have a couple newbies on the Wayward Side who might find this helpful. I continue to work my way thru the list. Most recent finish was "Boundaries - Where you do end and I begin". For someone who has realized how poor my boundaries have been, this was a GREAT book. Highly recommend.
I added another book to the list: The Four Agreements. It was so helpful with my control and esteem issues.

Bumping for newbies.
I just ordered a few. A friend who went through this actually gave us a lot of them after DDay1 and I read....but was in such a heavy fog it didn't do any good.
Hoping for better this time!
Didn't see this book listed
Healing the shame that binds you
It is a slow read very detailed but I am learning so much about myself and my family history that sort of payed the ground work for ms to get where I am
Great topic lots of books I don't yet have on my list to read thanks
Thanks for the bump! :)
Thanks so much! This list is almost overwhelming ......
I think for me ..... i need to work on understanding me so the boundaries book sounds interesting.
Many of the WS also mention how can I forgive..... and that it helps understand BS pain so I might try that as well.....
Lastly the 5 apology languages.....
"Beauty from Ashes" by Joyce Meyer was instrumental for me. I wish I had read it years ago.
Have not started it yet but it was highly recommended to me by my OMA (technically my BFF's mom but my "Other Mother" & "Other Grandmother" to my son).
