We start the week with a return to Dr. Brene Brown.
Boundary is simply what’s okay and what’s not okay.
I’ve also used the definition from Dr. Henry Cloud, a boundary is where you stop and where I begin.
What do you think of her statement “The most compassionate people I have interviewed over the last 13 years are the most boundaried.”?
WHY would people who have good boundaries compassionate? What is going on with that? Aren’t people who say “no, I won’t do this” being mean/limiting/selfish/unreasonable?
What happens when you start saying “Yes” and “No”? People get flustered. You’ve gone off-script! Everyone is uncomfortable and they will be looking to you to make it all better.
We return to the idea of worth with this great SuperSoul Sunday talk from Iyanla Vanzant.
Why are we coming back to worth?
What do you think of “this tendency to take on what is given to us as our own?”
When you read that, what’s your reaction?
In your own words, what are boundaries?
What are boundaries not?
