Staying Inside Your Emotional Boundaries
Season 3, Episode 112
When our emotions and communications become problematic, it is almost always connected to blurred relationship boundaries. We can be so consumed by having harmony that we behave in troublesome ways when it is not happening. In this podcast we will identify cues indicating blurred boundaries, then we will look at the better alternatives.
Less is More!
Something to Think About
In this episode, we recognized that:
- When you feel emotions like anger, tension, and guilt, there is probably a valid message at the base.
- When your emotions (and accompanying communication and behavior) are exaggerated, it usually indicates a need for others’ validation.
- When you live with healthy boundaries, you are able to distinguish what you are and are not responsible for.
“Name 2 or 3 illustrations of times when your emotions or behaviors are tied too heavily to the other person’s responses. How would clear boundaries prompt you to respond differently?”
