I Don't Have to Make Everything All Better by Gary Lundberg, Joy Lundberg

In their weekly radio show and in their popular workshops, Gary and Joy Lundberg have already helped thousands of people and their families to communicate more effectively. Now, the Lundbergs address an all too common dilemma that arises when others expect you to solve their problems for them, showing readers how they can shed the no-win role of "fixer" and empower people to solve their own problems through validation--a simple yet profound communication tool that is essential to any healthy relationship. Refreshingly straightforward, this inspiring and entertaining work is poised to become a classic guide for anyone who wishes to improve relationships with their partner, children, colleagues and friends.

This book contains many ideas on how to avoid taking responsibility for problems that are not yours. It also shows how to stay true to your ideals when you may not agree with another's. I highly recommend it!

I originally read this book about 8-9 years ago. I am STILL re-reading it, writing notes on 3 x 5 cards, and carrying them around with me. And now, I'm learning how Not to rescue another rescuer (friend)! The language in the book was such an easy read, I underestimated the power of it. Recognizing my thinking patterns and using the text in the book, it is much easier for me to recognize when I am doing things that are too helpful and will lead me to a difficult situation that I don't want to be in.

Recommended by our family therapist. My copy is dog-eared and I refer often to this wonderful little book. Easy to read, understand and put into practice. I have suggested this book to family and friends- all have thanked me. No matter what other books you have read/own in this genre, you may only need this one book. Both my husband and I each have our own copies on our bedside tables. FYI we are not the "self-help" book type people. Love this book!

This is an amazing book on learning how to validate people's feelings without taking all their problems on yourself. This is a must read for anyone in any kind of leadership position. It really helps you deal with others in a positive, rewarding way.
