Is That Normal? Podcast Episode 79 – Great Ways to Set Boundaries

Have you ever said “yes” to too many commitments? Do you sometimes want to say “no” to even the best requests? Have you ever realized too late that you ran a relational stop sign? If so, you might have a boundary problem!

In this episode, Mark and Randell discuss the habit of boundary setting. As a part of that discussion, they share some ideas from a great resource – “Boundaries” by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. You can check out more information about their research at boundariesbooks.com.

Here’s a few highlights from the episode:

  • Defining boundaries means we must have a clear understanding of who we are, what we own, and what our responsibilities are.
  • Identifying where we struggle in what we say and what we hear is key to developing better boundaries.
  • We have to learn to say “yes” to the right things and “no” to the wrong things.
  • Regular discussions with our family are a good evaluation tool.
  • Boundaries aren’t set overnight. And even when they are set, they will need constant attention.

We hope this information sets you on the path to making healthier boundaries in your life and the lives of those around you. Until next time, Be Abnormal!
