Making Boundaries Simple Pt. 2

Episode 170,   Nov 27, 2022, 10:00 PM

With just 5 simples steps you can establish boundaries in your life that are not just strong - but long lasting. Remember comfort and growth can't occupy the same space. Sometimes the hardest things can be the most beneficial for us.

We know WHAT boundaries are…
WHEN we need them…
So that just leaves us with one last question…

HOW do we go about establishing them?

That’s the topic on everyone’s lips today in the latest podcast from our Boundaries mini-series, with Mitch and Mills honing in on 5 steps you can take right now to protect your peace.

  • Interrogate the discomfort (don’t numb it)
  • Set boundaries with yourself first (Go within before focusing outward
  • Communicate. Communicate. Communicate. (Stop expecting others to get your position without telling them it first)
  • Make it a statement (Questions imply you’re open to moving the lines. You don’t have to excuse yourself)
  • Be strong but not defensive (When you are the latter you perceive others can take that boundary off you)
Remember - it’s not our job to make everyone love us. It’s to create clear lines so that when others want to come in, they know the rules.
