In this episode, we will dive into my top four boundary rules that will help you have success. All of us could use better boundaries. We can use these boundaries with our children, our in-laws, our spouse, and our co-workers. Boundaries are an essential component of our happiness and joy. Lacking boundaries is a sure-fire way to feel miserable and like a doormat.

First, why do boundaries fail? They fail when we are scared to speak our truth because it is controversial to other people. Eventually, someone will cross the line one too many times. That explosion is guaranteed conflict, hurt, and anger. Instead, create healthy boundaries in your relationships.

The four boundary rules:

  1. Clear
  2. Kind
  3. Unemotional
  4. A request versus a command

Tune in as we dissect all the boundary rules, how to implement them, and the importance of rehearsing your boundary conversations.
