Terri Cole is back on the podcast today and we are diving in on a topic this audience, loves –boundaries! We started with how to know when you need them and from there got into, “high functioning codependency”, capacity versus willingness, overcorrections and misconceptions about what it means to be your best self.
We also talked about how critical mindfulness and present moment consciousness are to well drawn boundaries, cultivating the internal space to respond not react (a valuable distinction), boundary bullies and the relationship between boundaries and control.
As always Terri brings the good stuff. If you’re someone who is practicing better boundaries, this is definitely one to listen to a few times and share with friends!
