Podcast 454: What to do when boundaries collide in relationships
Download my new and improved brain detox app here: https://neurocycle.app
SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I talk about what happens when boundaries collide in relationships, and how to navigate tense situations. This is part 1 of a 2 part series. Boundaries are a hot topic these days. Many people post about the importance of boundaries, how to set them and how to respect them, all of which are important. Boundaries help us build stronger relationships with the people in our life. They help us increase our respect for ourselves as we learn how to recognize our own limits and protect our mental health, while acknowledging that other people also have their limits. Once we start setting our own boundaries and respecting other people’s boundaries, we tend to see a huge improvement in our own mental health and in our relationships. The more we set our own boundaries, the more we learn to understand and respect the boundaries of the people in our lives.
